Chocolate Cornflake Clusters Recipe

If there had ever been a minimalist movement in food, we’re pretty sure these Chocolate Cornflake Clusters would’ve been at the forefront of it.

When you travel to France, it becomes evident that the pastries are numerous and one more complex than the next. So, these super simple-to-make chocolate clusters could feel a bit out of place.

But, just like a simple haute couture dress, it becomes evident that simplicity is the genius behind these French treats. We only wonder why we didn’t come up with something so simple ourselves. But then it’s only fitting that it takes a mastermind like French pastry chef Jacques Pepin to make something so simple yet so brilliant.

  • 8 ounces milk chocolate coarsely chopped
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups corn flake cereal


  • Prepare A Baking Sheet: Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl then set over a pan of simmering water and stir until smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately stir in the cornflakes until they're well coated (it's totally fine if some of them get broken and crushed).
  • Form The Clusters: Use a tablespoon to scoop up a bit of the mixture, then drop onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat, leaving 1-inch in between each cluster until you've used up all the mixture. Set aside to cool (or refrigerate or freeze) until ready to use.
