Banana and Honeycomb Millionaire’s Flapjacks

DSC_0133

This is definitely not for the faint-hearted (perhaps quite literally). Chocolate, butter, sweet caramel and a LOT of golden syrup turns into a flapjacks take on Millionaire’s shortbread. I spent a good 15 minutes meticulously cutting the chocolate off the outside of a Crunchie bar as I couldn’t find any honeycomb pieces at my local supermarket. The lengths I will go to for a delicious chocolaty treat!

Ingredients:
2oz soft brown sugar
3oz butter
2 heaped tablespoons golden syrup
6oz rough cut/porridge oats
handful banana chips, roughly crushed
for the salted caramel:
375g condensed milk
3 tbsp golden syrup
150g butter
1 tsp salt
200g milk chocolate
handful honeycomb pieces
Method:
(preheat oven to 180*c and line a 12″ square baking tray with greaseproof paper)
- in a large pan, melt together the butter, sugar and syrup – don’t be stingy on the syrup, whack it in there!
- remove from the heat and stir in the oats and banana chips
- press the mixture firmly into the baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden
- leave to cool in the tray
for the caramel:
- melt the butter, milk, salt and syrup together in a pan, then bring to the boil and stir until thickened and a light golden brown colour
- leave to cool slightly in the pan, then pour over the cooled flapjack and leave to set
- melt the milk chocolate in a bain marie
- spread evenly over the flapjacks and sprinkle with honeycomb pieces
- when the chocolate has set, cut the flapjacks into squares
makes 16 flapjacks

    Hm; never thought of using banana chips as an ingredient. Cool!

      I’m sure it would work with fresh banana too, (maybe with a longer cooking time due to the extra moisture) but I like the added crunch! :)
