Chocolate Drizzle Flapjack

Children's Baking, Teatime, snack, lunchbox, treat, oats

I can’t actually remember the first recipe I ever made at home but if I was a betting person I think it would be Flapjacks from “Learnabout… Cooking” by Ladybird Books. This was my first ever cookery book and cost the princely sum of 24p. I’m sure I would have made the Jam Tarts and Shortbread from here too! I stumbled across this book in my daughters room the other day and suggested we should make something from it. Hence we gave the Flapjacks a tweak with some soft brown sugar and added a chocolate drizzle decoration as we are all chocoholics in this house. I’d never made my own piping bags before but decided that from experience, using the daub with a spoon method was not going to be pretty enough. Armed with my can do approach and a bit of logic the piping bags worked really well and I’d use this method again as they really took not time to put together and the effect they gave was fab.

They don’t make books like this any more!

We really enjoyed these flapjacks as unlike a recipe I have used in the past they are not brittle and have a nice chew to them which together with the chocolate topping is just a yummy fudgy combination

I’m entering my Chocolate Drizzled Flapacks into Credit Crunch Munch as oats are really cheap and I also used value chocolate which costs only 30p. This challenge run by myself and Helen at  Fuss Free Flavours and being hosted by Janice at Farmersgirl Kitchen this month. I am also entering the “Walk Through Memory Lane” event started by Gayathri’s Cookspot and being hosted this month by Nivedhanam as this recipe is vegetarian and a huge trip down memory lane. Next I am entering Javeline Warriors Cookin w/luv Made with Love Mondays challenge as this recipe is made from scratch:-) Lastly I am linking up to Foodie Quinn’s My First Cookbook post where first cook books are being remembered and celebrated:-).

Chocolate Drizzle Flapjack
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
A yummy chewy flapjack drizzled with dark and white chocolate.
Recipe type: Snack
Cuisine: British
Serves: 6
  • 75 g / 3 oz Golden syrup
  • 75g / 3 oz Light brown sugar
  • 75g / 3 oz Butter or Spread eg Flora Buttery
  • 150g / 6 oz Rolled Oats
  • Pinch of salt
  • A little oil for greasing
  • Topping:
  • 50g / 2 oz Dark Chocolate
  • 50g / 2 oz White Chocolate
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160°C.
  2. Grease the inside of an 18cm (7”) shallow cake tin and line with baking paper.
  3. Put the golden syrup, butter and sugar in a pan over a low heat stirring until melted.
  4. Pour in the oats and salt and mix well.
  5. Put the mixture in the cake tin pressing it down well with the back of a spoon.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until the centre of flapjack is firm to the touch.
  7. Remove from oven and mark out portions whilst still hot.
  8. Once cool turn out onto a cooling rack.
  9. Now make 2 small piping bags out of baking paper.
  10. Tear off about 30 cm of baking paper from roll and fold in half (lengthways).
  11. Then roll into a cone shape using the centre point as the tip of the cone.
  12. Trim excess paper off and fold rim over itself to secure. Repeat.
  13. Now make the chocolate topping by first melting the dark chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of hot water on a low heat.
  14. Spoon the chocolate into one of your piping bags and snip off the tip with scissors.
  15. Now pipe over the flapjack being as creative as you like.
  16. Repeat the above steps with the white chocolate and allow chocolate to set before serving. A brief stint in the fridge is helpful but only for about 10 mins as you don’t want the dark chocolate to go cloudly.

  28. @FoodieQuine

    Thanks for linking up to the #myfirstcookbook linky. By the looks of things the Learnabout… cookbook was a popular first and great to see that you still cook from it. A culinary classic!

  29. Helen Gardner

    They look absolutely gorgeous and so simple to make

    OMG!!! That is beautiful… You have explained it very well and I am loving the picture series… very helpful… bookmarking it… Thanks for sending this yummy recipe to my event.. Looking for more yummy recipes…

  32. Jacqueline

    Oh that looks good Camilla. Never thought of baking flapjacks in a round tin. Not sure why not.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks! Well Jacs, this is how we did it on the old days and my mum’s tins used to have a metal slider that you swiveled round to loosen your bake LOL:-)

  33. Anneli (Delicieux)

    That looks so yummy! My kids will love it. Definitely going to knock up a batch of flapjacks at the weekend. You have inspired me 🙂 x

    1. Camilla

      Brilliant Anneli, I’m sure your kids will love them:-)

  34. Javelin Warrior

    Love the use of the oats and I’m wondering if it might even be possible to make this with maple syrup or part maple syrup… Such a heart and delicious treat…

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Mark. Not sure about maple syrup as it much thinner thank golden syrup but maybe a mixture would give it a nice Mapley taste:-)

  35. Jacqueline @How to be a Gourmand

    I’ve just come back from a hike and I could murder a slice of this and a large mug of tea Camilla – just the energy boost I need. Love the idea of two types of chocolate on top 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Ooh yes this would be perfect after a hike, guilt free pleasure in that case win/win:-)

  36. Laura Loves Cakes

    That’s a blast from the past…I’m pretty sure I had that cookbook too! 🙂 Lovely looking flapjacks and I love the addition of the chocolate drizzle on the top too! 🙂

    1. Camilla

      It is indeed and so different from today’s kids cook books – don’t think they’d tell them not to lick their fingers, but maybe they should:-) Thanks for your lovely comment and taking the time to pop over:-)

  37. Janice

    They look great Camilla, thanks for entering them in Credit Crunch Munch.

  38. Ang

    Definitely on my to do list today. They look fab!!
