It is so easy to make flapjacks!

A garage down the road sells chocolate covered flapjacks. I’ve bought a few in the recent past and savoured every bite but the last time I was down there they only had plain ones! What would I do? My life ground to a halt and in desperation I contemplated droving all over the country looking for the hidden chocolate flapjacks! Alas, it was not to be.

Instead I fired up my browser and quickly came upon this simple recipe to make flapjacks. Ingredients and recipe couldn’t be easier – two cups of porridge oat flakes, a few blobs of golden syrup, a lump of butter, salt and sugar and over a heated saucepan the mixture melts and oozes together. Melting chocolate over boiling water has the added bonus of scraping out the left overs after. Yum! I’m going to do make me some flapjacks this weekend!

I can finally lay the rice crispy cakes or buns debate to rest. It’s “rice crispy cakes”. I saw a packet of rice crispy cakes clearly bearing that proud name in our local shop, so it has to be cakes, not buns!
