Caramel Cornflake Topping

  1. Using a large saucepan, add sugar and heat on a medium temperature until the sugar begins to melt. Stirring occasionally to move sugar around the saucepan.

  2. While the sugar is melting, prepared measured cream and butter.

  3. When sugar has completely dissolved and turn a deep amber colour, remove from the heat. Add cream and butter to dissolved sugar, but please note that this may bubble and steam instantly, so be careful. Return to a medium heat once again and continue to stir through until combined. Once smooth, continue to simmer for a further 5 or so minutes until caramel starts to thicken.

  4. Have a glass of cold water nearby, dip a teaspoon into the caramel, then into the cold water. If the caramel cools and becomes nice and tactile (not too runny or solid), this is the perfect time to remove the caramel from the heat.

  5. Finally add the cornflakes to the caramel and stir through, making sure to coat thoroughly.

  6. Tip cornflake mixture out on top of slightly cooled brownie or blondie base. Evenly press down firmly and allow to cool for about an hour before slicing and serving. Enjoy.
