Chocolate coated caramelised cornflake biscuits from Leibniz. Ohhhh so good.
In our house, these are known as “Crack Biscuits”. They’re that addictive.

I took this picture so you’d see the reverse of the packet. Crispy Cornflakes. Crunchy Leibniz Biscuit. Delicious Whole Milk Chocolate. But do you see the resealable sticker? Yeah, that’s just wishful thinking. It’s never once been used on the many many packets of these Mr. E3 and I have demolished.
Should I be admitting that?
At secondary school, my absolute all-time favourite canteen dessert was the cornflake tart. Produced in those massive catering trays, the dish comprised of pastry, raspberry jam and then buttery, syrup coated cornflakes piled on top and baked until the pastry was cooked through and everything had set. I’ve no idea what it was called – cornflake tart maybe? – but it was great.
These biscuits are topped with a buttery, caramelised surface of cornflakes and I’d really love to see a version of these made with a raspberry flavoured, jammy dodger-style base – swap the milk chocolate for a custard flavoured white chocolate? Ooof. Leibniz NPD, make it happen!
Anyway, back to the biscuit at hand. They can look a little bit bashed on the chocolate drizzle but don’t be too hard on them. Looks arn’t everything.
The biscuit is crunchy and thin – the base is entirely coated in chocolate. It’s a lovely, creamy milk chocolate too. The cornflakes are caramel sugar sweet and nicely crisp. In fact, I’d argue these are best eaten whole. Just shove the thing in your mouth and ignore the looks – cause if you bite these in half, those cornflakes have been known to fall off. Oh and it’s perfectly reasonable to fit a whole one of these in your mouth, they’re not especially large.
So, there we are. We like them. A lot. They’re crunchy, sweet and chocolatey. They’d be rubbish for dunking in a brew but probably great for scooping up vanilla ice cream.
