Banana and Honeycomb Millionaire’s Flapjacks

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:

for the flapjacks:

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

 to garnish:

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

to decorate:

– 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
