Flapjacks to die for!

Uncategorized | September 26, 2011 | By

Ah the evils of We should Cocoa.  I was checking out the entry by Cake, Crumbs and Cooking and saw these amazing flapjacks.  They have so much fat and sugar in them, they should really only be available on prescription for very thin people!
Thing is, my friend was coming for lunch and the trouble with being a food blogger is that people who know about your blog expect very high standards of home cooking and baking!  So I had to make something and somehow I was drawn to these.  
Of course, being me, things didn’t go quite according to plan.  When I went to my larder I found that the small tin of condensed milk I had in there, wasn’t!  It was a tin of dulce de lecce.  I did have a huge tin of condensed milk which I bought by mistake when on-line shopping, but I didn’t want to open it because I really don’t need to have that sitting around waiting to be used up.
So, as previously mentioned, it’s five miles to the shops so I just used the Dulce de Lecce, its only boiled up condensed milk anyway, so I figured it would work…and it did!  I also used raisins instead of dried cranberries, v. tasty.

The flapjacks are sweet, chewy and absolutely delicious. Cut into small squares as they are very rich.  And of course, when my friend arrived, she had brought some chocolate chip cookies that she had made for me!  Nice to receive some home baking, thanks!

Thanks too, to Cake, Crumbs and Cooking for pointing me in the direction of this great recipe!

    LOL! They should be on prescription for very thin people! Love it! They do look exceedingly decadent, but very nice Janice.

    I have only heard of flapjacks before but never seen how to bake it or how they look like. Now you told me it is for think people, I'm out of the league. LOL. One day I want to have just a small bite… it won't hurt right? 😉 Looks delicious!

    Mmm I bet they were delicious!
    I know what you mean about pressure once people know you're food blogging – my chocolate pear tart was dissected and judget meticulously (yet light heartedly!).

    When I saw your tweet I was wondering if they were a "naughty" recipe as they were described as prescription flapjacks, haha!

    These look fabulous – and yes, people do have unfair expectations of us, don't they? Oh for the days when you could invite someone over for a cup of tea and a disaster cake!

    Yummity yum, how could these be anything other than scrumilious – sound more like fudge than flapjacks!

    Glad to see it's not only me that realise they don't have the correct ingredients, but it's easier for me being in London. It was a very witty blog and looking forward to trying them out.

    Sorry, only just seen these! I'm so glad you made them and enjoyed them so much, and great idea to replace the condensed milk with dulche de leche – super indulgent! Thank you for the links too!
