Popcorn Flapjacks

Trying to come up with a different flapjack recipe for the party on Saturday was easy; my Mum LOVES popcorn, and I’ve been meaning to try popcorn flapjacks for a while, so this was the perfect excuse to finally give them a go! I’m regretting not trying them sooner now – these are my new favorite! (Sorry the photo is a bit dark - being inside at night, with no flash, after a few drinks can be blamed for that!)

175g unsalted butter
2tbsp golden syrup
175g demerara sugar
225g rolled oats
100g toffee popcorn
Drizzle of maple syrup

Pre-heat your oven to 160c and grease/line a deep-sided baking tray or dish.

In a small saucepan over a low heat, melt the butter and golden syrup together. Once melted, remove from the heat and leave to cool.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar and oats and make a well in the middle. Pour the cooled butter into the well and mix thoroughly, making sure all of the oats are covered in the butter mixture.
Stir in the toffee popcorn, and tip the mixture into your tray or dish. Press the mixture down with the back of a spoon, pushing it into the corners and leveling the surface.
Drizzle over a little maple syrup before popping it in the oven and baking for 18-20 minutes.

Leave to cool in the dish before removing, and cutting into squares.
