Cornflakes Pudding (Easter Baskets)

My Mum learnt how to make this dessert and many more when they moved to Kenya.  She would often make the mixture and make cornflakes clusters on a cake liner and serve it as a chocolate.  I was so proud of her for making us chocolates.  This year I made the mixture with my grandson and we made it into a bird’s nest for easter.
