Chocolate Caramel Flapjacks

At every market I visited in Brittany there was always a stall selling the Breton speciality caramel au beurre salé, a deliciously gooey buttery caramel. I ended up buying 5 large tubs of the stuff to take home with me, but I really wish now that I'd bought more - it's so good, especially on ice cream.

This recipe is an adaption of a millionaires shortbread, but uses a flapjack base rather than shorbread - and I actually prefer it. These bars are best kept in the fridge to keep the caramel firm. Enjoy.


| Serves: makes 16 squares  | Prep Time: 10 Minutes plus overnight chilling | Cook Time: 45 Minutes | Total Time: 55 Minutes plus chilling |


  • 200g Butter
  • 140g Light Brown Sugar
  • 60g Golden Granulated Sugar
  • 2 TBSP Syrup
  • 350g Oats
  • 250g Caramel - or just use a 397g tin of Carnation Caramel (you will just end up with a thicker layer of caramel)
  • 100g Dark Chocolate
  • 100g Milk Chocolate


  • Step 1: Preheat oven to 150c and line a 20cm square cake in with baking paper.
  • Step 2: Melt the butter, sugar and syrup in a pan, stirring occasionally. Take off the heat and add in the oats.
  • Step 3: Pour the flapjack mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 45 minutes. Let the flapjack cool.
  • Step 4: Spread the caramel onto the now cooled flapjack and put in the fridge to set (overnight).
  • Step 5: Melt the chocolate in the microwave and then spread on top of the caramel
  • Step 6: Place the tin back in the fridge until chocolate has set.
  • Step 7: Cut into 16 squares and keep in the fridge.
