Ms. Amos’ Recipe of the Edition: Honey Joys


Michelle Amos, an Upper School Chemistry Teacher, is known for her baking. She often brings tasty treats for her advisory and Chemistry classes. Honey Joys are one of her most popular snacks.

Honey Joys are popular Australian snacks typically packed in lunches or served at birthday parties. In Australia, they’re known as honey crackles, but they can also be called cornflake crackles.

They have always been a favorite of my students. I have many memories over the last 10 years making these for my advisory groups, and when my former students hear that I have made them, they were very quick to drop by to see if there were any leftovers. I made them last year for my classes, and they were a hit as the sophomores shared them amongst their friends,” Ms. Amos said.
