Today’s cookie, another recipe from the old Bake-Off book, is “Chocodile Bars”. It’s a cookie with a firm peanut butter base and a topping made with melted chocolate, peanut butter, and a cereal called Corn Soya which I’d never heard of and had to look up on Mr. Breakfast. It sounds kind of good, but I guess it wasn’t good enough because it no longer exists and I had to use Rice Krispies.
Aside from the Rice Krispies, I made the recipe as written but halved it and baked it in a 9 inch pan. I think my crust was a little too thick and I have a feeling actual Corn Soya (I wish I could go back in time and get some) would have given more character to this bar. Still, the bars weren’t bad, they just didn’t have quite enough peanut flavor for me which means I’ll need to make them again with extra peanut.
Recipe Goldmine published a Chocodile Bars recipe which is pretty much the same as the original and the one I made today. Oh, and please ignore the white part. That was an experiment involving marshmallow creme and I shouldn’t have featured the experimental bar in the photo but it was good and all you do is put marshmallow creme on the hot base, then pour some of the topping on that.
Also, if you’ve ever eaten Corn Soya, I’d like to know about it. Specifically, what modern cereal would be most like it in texture and flavor? Corn Flakes? Thank you.
