Marbled Chocolate Cornflake Energy Bars

An energetic crunchy bar with corn flakes, dried fruits, nuts and double chocolates.

  • 150 g Nuts (a mix of almonds and hazelnuts)
  • 80 g Corn flakes
  • 100 g Cranberries, dried
  • 50 g Raisins
  • 1/2 tbsp Malt extract
  • 150 ml 10% Unsweetened condensed milk
  • 150 g 72% Mövenpick dark chocolate angiesrecipes
  • 100 g White chocolate
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Place the nuts on a baking tray and toast for 10 minutes. Lightly grease a 15x25cm baking pan. Coarsely crumble the cornflakes and chop the cranberries. Roughly chop the toasted nuts.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine together the prepared nuts, corn flakes, cranberries, and raisins. Heat the malt extract and condensed milk in a small saucepan over the low heat until thoroughly combined. Pour the mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well.
  3. Place the mixture into the prepared baking pan, and press it down evenly all over. Bake in the centre of the oven for about 20 minutes until golden brown. Remove and cool completely on a wire rack.

  4. Temper the dark and white chocolate separately in heatproof bowls set over pans of barely simmering water, making sure the base of the bowls doesn’t touch the water.
  5. Once the baked cornflake has cooled, loose the edges with a knife and turn it out onto a board lined with a parchment paper. Spoon the dark chocolate all over the top of the square, leaving space in between. Then fill the gaps with the white chocolate. Swirl two chocolates together with a toothpick to create the marbled effect. Chill until set. Cut it into 15 squares.

The swirled chocolate looks amazing! And, with cranberries and nuts, these bars would disappear very quickly in my house.

These look so pretty and tasty! Think I could omit the malt extract, or substitute? I would like to make these gluten-free...I know I can find gluten-free corn flakes, but malt extract is a no-no.

Yasmeen 8/7/09 21:08

looks heavenly ,I love the unique pattern and mostly of all ,the dark chocolate :)

Angie's Recipes 8/7/09 21:24

I have noticed that you haven't updated for a while....sometimes life just gets a bit away.
The substitute of malt extract.....honey, beet sugar syrup, or inverted sugar syrup.
I love dark chocolate, would have even used 85% if I didn't just finish them.

Ivy 8/7/09 21:52

oh my, look at the choc sqaures! aweosme Angie. just the perfect brown and white criss cross lines running across! where can I look out for malt powder? I have never sued it, how does it look like?

Angie's Recipes 9/7/09 21:28

The colour of malt extract is more or less like sugar molasses. They can be found in the large grocery stores or Bio-stores. If you cannot find them, then use honey or sugar syrup instead.
