Honey Puffed Corn

/, Sweets/Honey Puffed Corn
Today whilst experimenting with and tasting some Popcorn Bars (will post the recipe once I get it right) I had a thought – As many of you know im obsessed with and make granola all the time in my Thermomomix. Why not try the same concept with the leftover puffed corn? I can’t make a toffee to save my life but a oil and honey syrup is a piece of cake.
 
This turned out great! I tried a few batches and worked brilliantly. I wouldn’t have it as a cereal but it would make a great snack especially for the lunchbox! You could experiment with different flavours by using fruit purรฉes, maple syrup, agave and adding some flavours like cinnamon or nutmeg. I might experiment as I make more. The kiddies will love this!
 

Puffed corn works better than popped as its not as “husky”. 

 
This recipe makes a small batch. Next time I will double it or quadruple it to last a full week.
