No pumpkin in sight today. πŸ˜‰ Instead, today I bring you my totally irresistible Chocolate Chip Cornflake Cookies. Yup. Irresistible. These cookies have now become one of my family’s (and mine!) favourite. These have everything I could ever want in a cookie. They’re ultra thick, incredibly chewy (a little help from the cornflakes), and oh so slightly crispy on the outside. Perfection!

My brother, Murray, likes to try everything I make, and give a proper ‘review’ on them, whether that be positive or negative, haha! Well, he absolutely LOVED these cookies (Yay!). He loved how soft they were, yet so chewy at the same time. He also loved how they were slightly crispy on the outside, too. My boyfriend helped taste-test, too – I believe he had two cookies before I even took the photos!

Because these cookies are loaded with chocolate chips and cornflakes, they won’t spread much in the oven, meaning you’ll have these scrumptiouslyΒ thick cookies to enjoy. These cookies require no creaming method, and no chilling time, which means you can have these cookies sooner!

If you’re planning to make these cookies ahead of time, you can store the cookie dough balls, covered, in the fridge for up to 5 days, or you can freeze them for up to 3 months. Bake from frozen for an extra minute.

I made the cornflakes extra flavourful and crispy by mixing them with a little malt powder, sugar, and melted butter, and baking them for about 15 minutes. That’s what gives these cookies that extra chewiness, and I love it!

One thing I love about these cookies is that you can really taste the cornflakes. They’re not just for chewiness, but they add another flavour that pairs wonderfully with the cookies. Make these the cookies you bake next, you won’t be disappointed – I promise.

    The cookies look great! Such a fun way to use cornflakes. I have a brother who loves to be the “taste test critic”, too!

    These cookies are gorgeous! I love how thick they are — and adding cornflakes to them for extra crunch! I’ve been known to add rice krispies to mine so we’re not too far off. As always, your pictures are beautiful!

    I wouldn’t use the malt powder for any other purpose. Is it vital? Is there a substitute that would work?

      Malt powder is really just for taste, but it’s totally optional.

    These cookies look delicious! Sometimes adding in a new ingredient like cornflakes really works! My mom has a cookie recipe that has potato chips in it and they are amazing! Look forward to trying these =)

    Thick, chewy AND crispy?? I’m swooning, naturally. I love that Murray insists on helping you “review” your cookies. Erm… any slots open for some taste “reviewing??” I could help ya. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ And I don’t even know how your boyfriend was able to stop at two. That’s some admirable self control! Hehe. Another fantastic recipe, Marsha! Hope you’re having an awesome start to the week. xo

    sorry Marsha but I have one crucial question because as I mentioned to you that I am making this recipe, but you only say add the egg do you mean both the egg and the egg yolk or is it just one?
