The first time I served these on my market stall at Druid Street in London, people went crazy for them. One wonderful lady used to come prepared with a big plastic tub and buy them all except one that she would leave for the next lucky customer. These are now a Fatties must-have! They are a simple, deeply satisfying snack, sweet with condensed milk and rich with dark, complex caramel and sea salt.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
200g cornflakes
225g caster sugar
75g salted butter
400g tinned condensed milk
1 teaspoon sea salt
edible glitter
or edible shimmer spray paint
Dry caramel

Method

  1. Cover a flat work surface with a large piece of baking parchment and half fill a small bowl with water.
  2. Measure out the cornflakes into a large bowl. Set to one side.
  3. In a large, heavy-based saucepan, make a very dark dry caramel with the sugar. Once smoking and nearing burnt, add the butter and stir to incorporate.
  4. Turn the heat down to low and add the condensed milk. Stir thoroughly to combine and to avoid the condensed milk catching on the bottom of the pan. Add the sea salt and the cornflakes. Gently fold the cornflakes into the caramel, coating each one but being careful not to crush. Remove the pan from the heat and leave to cool slightly until cool enough to handle.
  5. Using number 30 portioner or equivalent, scoop out single mounds for mini bocaditos or double scoops for bigger ones onto the prepared surface, dampening your hands in the water as you go and compressing the heaps to help the mounds stick together.
  6. Leave for about 10 minutes to cool and set fully. Sprinkle with edible glitter or spray with edible shimmer spray paint for a special touch!
  7. Enjoy right away or store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
