|3 cups||Nestle Country Corn Flakes|
|2 cups||whole milk and light cream|
|1/2 cup||kosher salt|
|5 tbsp||unsalted butter, cut into pieces|
|1 tsp||vanilla extract|
|1 cup||powdered sugar|
|1/2 cup||dark chocolate, finely chopped|
|a sprinkle of powdered sugar for each serving|
- Place the brown sugar, whole milk and light cream, salt, and 4 tablespoons butter in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan.
- Warm over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar melts and is no longer sandy, 4 to 5 minutes.
- Place a candy thermometer in the pan and gently boil, without stirring, until the mixture reaches 235 degrees F, 10 to 12 minutes.
- Meanwhile, line an 8" square pan with nonstick foil, leaving a 2" overhang on two sides.
- Transfer the mixture to the bowl of an electric mixer and stir in the vanilla. With the mixer on low speed, gradually beat in the powdered sugar until the mixture is smooth and lighter in color, 3 to 4 minutes. Spread the mixture into the prepared pan.
- In a large bowl, microwave the chocolate and the remaining butter, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. Add the cornflakes and gently fold until evenly coated. Spoon on top of the fudge, then sprinkle with flaked salt, if desired or white chocolate syrup.
- Refrigerate until firm, at least 30 minutes and up to 5 days. When ready to serve, use the overhangs to lift the fudge out of the pan and cut into pieces
We've tried to answer as many of your questions as possible. You can search them all here:
How can I find foods made with whole grain?
Two things to remember: • Look for food labels where the word 'whole' appears in front of the name of the grain, like “whole wheat” or “wholemeal bread”. • For foods with more than one ingredient, make sure whole grain is listed towards the top of the ingredients list. The further up the list it is, the more whole grain has been used in the recipe. And look out for the percentage of whole grain. You should find this in the ingredients list too. It’s easy to know if a Nestlé breakfast cereal is made with whole grain: just look out for the Green Banner and whole grain tick on top of the box.
What should be in a complete breakfast?
A complete breakfast should include a balance of nutrients from each of the major food groups. As a guide, it might look like this: • 1 grain-based starchy food • 1 dairy food • 1 portion of fresh fruit • 1 glass of water • Optionally, an additional source of protein Nestlé breakfast cereals are a nutritious breakfast choice as they are: • A source of fiber and whole grain • Low in fat (most have low levels of all types of fat, including saturates) • Fortified with vitamins and minerals such as B vitamins, calcium and iron • A lower calorie per kilojoule, fat and sugar choice than many other breakfast food options
Do breakfast cereals contain too much saturated fat?
No. Breakfast cereals aren’t a major source of saturated fats, and contain no added trans fats. Some grains, such as oats, can be higher in fats – but these are naturally present in the grain, and tend to be ‘good’ fats, not saturated fats.
Can processed foods be made with whole grain?
Yes. If a food product has the word “whole” listed on its ingredient label – wholewheat pasta or wholemeal bread, for example, then you know it’s been made with whole grain flour, even if the other ingredients are processed. By the way, even whole grains need to be processed: removing the inedible outer husk makes them safe to eat. But they’re less processed than refined grains, which require additional steps to remove the bran and germ.
Do breakfast cereals really make a significant contribution to vitamin and mineral intakes?
Research shows that adults and children who regularly eat fortified breakfast cereals are more likely to reach their daily requirements of vitamins and minerals, including the B Vitamins and Iron. Eating whole grain breakfast cereal with milk is a nutritious way to start the day and can be part of a healthy, balanced diet.
