Do I need to say any more? How I haven’t thought of this combo before I don’t know! Salted caramel chocolate flapjacks are my new firm fav.
I have been making flapjacks with my mum since I was a little girl. It’s so quick and easy to make and the one thing that all my family can agree on. I remember mum making flapjacks for when we got home from school and as soon as it came out the oven we would all cut it straight out the tin as we couldn’t wait. This is my mums fail safe recipe but I have just jazzed it up a little with a few toppings.
6 oz margarine
4 1/2 oz golden syrup
4 1/2 oz soft brown sugar
12oz rolled oats
200g plain or dark chocolate
Note: My mum has been baking with margarine her whole life and it wasn’t until I discovered the lemon drizzle recipe a few years ago that I started using unsalted butter in a lot of my baking instead of margarine. I think you can use which ever you like for this recipe but to keep costs down and keep with family tradition I still use margarine.
Preheat the oven to 180 degree C. It depends how thick you want your flapjack as to what tin you should bake this in. I used a 12″ x 9″ tin and the flapjacks were about 2cm thick. I greased the tin slightly with a little margarine.
Melt the margarine, syrup and brown sugar together on the hob or in the microwave. It doesn’t need to boil, just warm through until the sugar dissolves and the margarine melts. Stir in the oats until all the oats are covered in the delicious brown sticky sauce. Pour the mix into the tin and pat down so the top is even. Bake in the oven for 20 – 30 minutes or until golden brown. Personally we prefer it slightly underdone but this is totally up to you.
Whilst the flapjack is cooling melt the chocolate. I used plain chocolate as I had some in the cupboard but I think dark chocolate would work great. I made my own salted caramel but you can use a pre-bought jar to save time.
Once the flapjack has cooled, drizzle over half the melted chocolate and then half the salted caramel. Repeat this with the second half of chocolate and salted caramel sauce. If you can, leave to cool before cutting into pieces and enjoying. Its safe to say I didn’t even wait for the chocolate to set …..
