    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease your baking tray and melt 250g of the butter in a saucepan.
    2. When butter has melted take off the heat. Add the sugar, golden syrup and 100g of the chocolate, and stir well. Add oats and stir well, then pour in baking tray and smooth out with the back of a spoon.
    3. Bake for 15 minutes. When you take them out of the oven, don't stress about the flapjacks not being set because they will set as they cool.
    4. While flapjacks are cooling you can start to make the topping. Melt the rest of the butter and chocolate, add the cinnamon and stir well. Cool the topping in fridge until set, 1 to 2 hours.
    5. When flapjacks and topping are set and cooled, spread chocolate topping over flapjacks, score and serve.

    The photo provided for this recipe looks really genuinely good. When I made them myself, they were horrifically bad! I followed the recipe to the letter, yet it all went so very wrong. It was like oats swimming in water, and it stayed swimming in water. Nothing set. I like to try a variety of recipes to find the perfect one. From what I experienced, this definitely is not the perfect flapjack recipe. I'll be returning to my original simple recipe. I don't think it helped that it was the writer of this recipe that left it the first and only 5 star rating.  -  10 Dec 2012
