Recipe: M&M Chocolate Flapjacks

M&M Chocolate Flapjacks


I said i'd got some more autumn recipes up my sleeve, so here's my second one. Flapjacks. But not just standard flapjacks, these ones are extra naughty as they're topped with milk chocolate AND chocolate M&Ms.

I always think flapjacks are an easy bake and one that's great when you fancy a sweet treat but don't want to make anything fancy. You can make this recipe with pretty much just store cupboard essentials and the results are delicious.

M&M Chocolate Flapjacks


I've tried many flapjack recipes, and often they can result in flapjacks that fall apart or are crumbly. The recipe I used here is from Lyle's website, but with a little more golden syrup and can honestly say they are the best I have had so far, resulting in a sticky gooey flapjack.

I think these flapjacks would also work really well topped with the peanut or crispy M&Ms and give an extra special crunch and flavour, if you try these variations do let me know in the comments!

M&M Chocolate Flapjacks



Makes 12 

Ingredients 
195g unsalted butter
275g golden syrup
500g porridge oats
150g milk chocolate
100g chocolate M&Ms

Method 

1. Preheat the oven to 180c and grease and line a 20x20 square tin

2.. Heat the butter and golden syrup together over a low heat in a heavy based saucepan, stirring regularly

3.. Once melted and combined, add the porridge oats and stir until all of the oats are coated in the butter/syrup mixture.

4. Transfer the oat mixture to the tin and level out with the back of the spoon or a spatula.

5. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 25 minutes

6. Leave to cool completely in the tin, and meanwhile melt the milk chocolate in a small bowl over some simmering water

7. Once the flapjacks are cool and the chocolate melted, pour the melted chocolate over the flapjacks and level out with a spatula so everywhere is covered. Top with the chocolate M&Ms then pop in the fridge for a minimum of 3 hours until the chocolate has hardened

8. Remove from the tin and slice into slices, size up to you but I made 12 large flapjacks.
