Chocolate Dipped Flapjack

I seem to be in a bit of a nostalgic mood recently, I’m not sure why but whatever the reason it means all I want to do is make things from my childhood so todays recipe is for chocolate dipped flapjack. It was always the thing I chose when we went to the local bakery when I was little, something about golden syrup coated oats covered in chocolate always dragged me in. Thankfully the recipe is super simple and can be made in no time at all perfect for when you need something ready fast.

Chocolate Dipped Flapjack

350g porridge oats

140g butter

225g light brown muscavado sugar

100g golden syrup

100g melted chocolate for dipping

Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan, and line a 9″x13″ pan with foil or baking parchment.

Place the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan set over medium heat and cook until the butter and sugar have melted and the mixture is smooth.

Remove from the heat and tip in the oats. Stir until the oats are coated evenly in the sugar mixture. Tip the oats into the prepared pan and press firmly into an even layer. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the edges are starting to turn golden.

Allow to cool completely in the pan before lifting the parchment and the flapjack out and cutting into squares. Place the melted chocolate in a small bowl and dip each flapjack coating half of each piece in chocolate. Set on a parchment lined baking tray and refrigerate until the chocolate sets.

  5. You can get versions of these in motorway service stations around the UK and they are SO horrible. These look like everything a flapjack should be – moist, syrupy, sweet and delicious – thank you for this wonderful nostalgic recipe – will definitely be making!

  6. I want one of those right now so, so, so badly. Holy cow.

    I’ve just pulled a batch out of the oven now – I changed light muscovado for dark because I fancied a darker, treacle-y flavour so I hope they work out ok!
