DSC_0014
A British favourite with a twist.  With the addition of some festive flavours, this version wouldn’t be out of place amongst the brandy snaps, warm mince pies and spicy christmas cake on christmas day.
Ingredients:
4 1/2oz butter
3oz soft brown sugar
3 large tbsp golden syrup
9oz porridge oats
2oz mixed dried fruit (sultanas, raisins, currants, candied rind)
brandy
3oz dark chocolate
candied orange and lemon rind
edible silver glitter
Method:
(preheat oven to 180*c and grease and line a 9″ square baking tray)
– soak the dried fruit and rind in brandy overnight
– melt the butter with the sugar and syrup over a gentle heat in a saucepan
– remove from heat and add the porridge oats and strained dried fruit
– add 2 tbsp of brandy
– spoon into baking tray and press down with back of spoon
– bake in over for 15-20 mins, or until golden
– when out of over, leave in tray to cool
– melt chocolate in a small bowl over a pan of hot water (bain marie)
– stir in 1 tbsp brandy
– pour over flapjacks and spread out to create a thin layer
– sprinkle over chopped candied rind
– once the chocolate has set, sprinkle over edible glitter
– cut into pieces with a sharp knife
makes 8 flapjacks
