Choc cornflake slice

This recipe is very simple and only takes 10 mins to put together.  The best part is that you probably have all of these ingredients in your kitchen already.   You can spread it with chocolate icing while the slice is still warm or wait until it cools, then dust with icing sugar - the choice is yours.  I like it both ways but my kids prefer it with icing (of course). The icing is simple to make and only takes 1 min so why not!

It is great to enjoy with a cup of tea or an afternoon snack for the kids.
