Very Naughty Chocolate Flapjacks for Very Naughty People

Let’s say that you think that you’re not naughty at all. In fact you think you’re very well behaved (well, most of the time). Then one day you chance upon this Silly Chefs article and decide to make the chocolate flapjack just as described. Naturally, you eat some of it to try it out – you have to, right? – and at that moment, even before you’ve digested it, you will have moved swiftly along the scale from “very, very good” to “very, very naughty”. That’s a fact.

Why is that you may well ask? Well this flapjack is even naughtier than the original recipe we based it on – which was naughty already (see allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/313/easy-chocolate-flapjacks.aspx). We added a bit of extra golden syrup and some extra chocolate. And Jess added some extra attitude as well. Result: super-naughty chocolate flapjack. Make it. Eat it. Repent.

How we did it (it’s very quick):

  • Jess wrote out the recipe without any help – I think I’ll start to spell “Sugar” as “Shooger” as well. It’s much more expressive.
  • We added the sugar and butter to a bowl and microwaved it until the butter had melted (about 30-40 seconds for us).
  • We stirred in the syrup and then the oats and microwaved it all for 3 minutes. We stirred again a little.
  • We used a 7 inch x 7 inch baking tray (lightly greased) but only filled it half way across – it was the smallest one we had. We spread the mixture evenly across the base…or half of the base in our case.
  • We melted the chocolate in the microwave – we kept our eye on it so that it had almost completely melted, but not quite (to avoid burning). However, it had melted enough so that when we stirred it, it was smooth. We spread this evenly over the mixture and left it to cool in the fridge for a couple of hours and then cut it into about 10 pieces. By the way, it probably didn’t need that long for the chocolate to set in the fridge but we decided to go out and burn some energy (that we were subsequently about to replenish six-fold).

What we thought of it:

It taste great. It tastes naughty. That’s because it is naughty. We ate some and therefore we’re naughty too. Jess’ mum has some. She’s naughty. Jess’ little sister Annie had some. Naughty too. Oh yes, and Katie who manages the Silly Chefs Kids Cooking Parties had a piece. Oh dear, another one.
