Orange Chocolate Flapjacks

My daughter was off school today ill 🙁  

So with nowhere and it snowing again, I decided to do some baking 🙁 

Here is what I came up with today to finish off the mixed peel from Christmas…

Makes 4


  •  125g Margarine
  • 125g Golden caster sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons of golden syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon orange juice
  • 175g Porridge oats
  • 75g Self raising flour
  • 50g Mixed orange and lemon peel
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon


  •  200g White cooking chocolate
  • Chocolate sprinkles

You will need:

  • 4 x medium love heart tray


  1.  Pre heat oven to 180c 375f Gas mark 5.
  2. Grease 4 heart trays.
  3. Place the margarine, golden caster sugar, golden syrup and orange juice into a large pan and gently heat until all melted.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the oats, self raising flour, mixed peel and ground cinnamon.
  5. Mix well.
  6. Spoon into the 4 trays and press down with the back of the spoon.
  7. Bake for around 15 minutes until golden.
  8. Remove from the oven.
  9. Leave 5 minutes then turn out to cool.
  10. Melt the cooking chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering pre boiled water.
  11. Once melted place the flapjacks back into the trays and cover the tops.
  12. Leave to cool slightly, so not to melt the sprinkles the place them on top
  13. Leave to set.
