I made these over the weekend for my Dad to take on a golfing Stag Day… Aidan, the groom, and his Dad, Stevie G, have in the past complimented (and requested more of) my flapjacks so these seemed like the perfect on-course treat to send for them! I think they went down well, as I got an empty tin back!
175g unsalted butter
175g demerara sugar
225g rolled oats
100g dry roast peanuts
12-15 Werther's Original candies
Pre-heat your oven to 180c and grease/line your dish with greaseproof paper.
In a small pan, over a low heat, mix the butter and honey. Remove from the heat once the butter is completely melted.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar and oats. Crush the peanuts with a rolling pin and add them to the bowl too. Pour the honey butter into the dry ingredients and mix well, making sure all the dry ingredients are coated in the liquid.
Cut the Werther's candies into quarters and stir these into the mix as well before tipping the whole lot into your prepared dish.
Use the back of a spoon to press the mix into the corners and flatten the surface. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until just firm to the touch and starting to turn golden on top.Leave to cool in the dish before turning out and cutting into bars.
