If lazy Sunday afternoons were a recipe, I’m pretty sure it would be this Milk chocolate and honeycomb flapjack recipe. For starters it takes minutes to make, minimal effort and it’s delicious!
It’s absolutely ideal for those occasions when you offer to bake something for a bake sale or to take to friends and then really wish you hadn’t. It’s also perfect for baking with kids, because its super simple.
Milk chocolate & honeycomb flapjack recipe
- 125g butter
- 100g light soft brown sugar
- 4 tbsp runny honey
- 250g rolled oats
- 50g honeycomb pieces
- 200g milk chocolate
1# Heat the oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tin with foil (I used a 20cm x 15cm). You could use baking parchment, but I find you get a cleaner shape with foil.
2# Chop the butter into cubes and melt over a low heat in a saucepan. Once the butter is melted, add in the sugar and honey, then stir through.
3# Add in the oats and 50g of the honeycomb pieces and stir. Once the mixture is completely combined, tip it into the baking tin and spread evenly over the base. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until the top had turned golden brown. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
4# You could eat the flapjacks like this, they’re still super tasty. But if it’s indulgence you want then you need the milk chocolate topping. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or using a bain marie. Pour the melted chocolate over the top off the flapjack and then sprinkle the remaining honeycomb pieces. I also added a few sprinkles to make it look a bit more interesting. Then leave to set. You could pop it in fridge if you want to speed things up.
I think the real beauty of this recipe is that you can substitute the ingredients for whatever you have in your cupboard. Any type of brown sugar will work or you could use golden syrup if you don’t have honey. Have some spare sultanas? Chuck them in! Don’t have chocolate – skip it out.
Morph the recipe in to whatever your heart desires (or whatever is gathering dust in your kitchen cupboards) and if it turns out yummy, then let me know! I can definitely vouch for this version.
