Chocolate Cornflake Bars

Chewy and crispy, these chocolate cornflake bars from Marc Matsumoto of PBS Food's Fresh Tastes come together in about 5 minutes.


2.5 ounces unsalted butter
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
7.8 ounces marshmallows
6.4 ounces cornflakes
4.2 ounces chocolate chips


1.  Line a 9"x9" brownie pan with parchment paper. 

2. Add the butter, cocoa powder, and marshmallows to a microwave-safe bowl and heat until the marshmallows start to melt.

3. Stir once, then return to the microwave and heat until the marshmallows are completely melted. Stir until the mixture is uniform in appearance.

4. Add the cornflakes and chocolate chips and stir to coat evenly.

5. Empty the mixture into your prepared pan and use another sheet of parchment paper to flatten the top and press the mixture into the corners of the pan. Refrigerate until set, then slice into bars to serve.
