Cornflake Flapjacks

For Lara 😊 This treat is an exercise in restraint and the reason for that is, you MUST let it cool. If you don't, you'll be getting out a spoon to eat them like breakfast. Not quite like the original flapjack, they are pretty indulgent and a dangerously easy-to-eat-too-much-of snack.





150g butter 3/4 cup brown sugar 2 Tbsp golden syrup 4 Tbsp peanut butter (this is optional but amazing, I am PB obsessed) 1 1/2 cups rolled or steel cut oats 3 cups cornflakes (or use 2 more cups oats) Choc Top (Optional) 50g dark chocolate  30g butter Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking dish with baking paper (about 20x30cm). In a large pot, place butter, brown sugar and golden syrup (and peanut butter if using). Cook on low heat for about 3 minutes, until all melted and combined.  Stir through oats and cornflakes thoroughly to coat. Transfer mixture to prepared dish, pressing down to compress into an even layer. If you like a chewy texture, bake for 10 minutes. If you prefer crunchy, you will need to bake a further 10 minutes. Allow to cool for 20 minutes. Place chocolate and butter in a heat-proof bowl and melt in the microwave in 10 second bursts, until melted. Use a spoon to drizzle chocolate over slice. Pop in the fridge for 1 hour to set before cutting.  If you don't eat them all in one sitting, keep them stored in a container in the fridge.
