Ingredients (makes 20-30 truffles depending on how big you roll them)

  • 200 g/ 7 oz milk chocolate (you could use dark or plain, mint or orange chocolate)

  • 100 g / 3.5 oz vanilla/plain biscuits (I used malted milk biscuits, but digestives, shortbread, marie biscuits or similar would also work – use your favourites!).
  • Approx. 50 g / 1.7 oz rainbow sugar spinkles (hundreds and thousands).

Recipe | Chewy chocolate oat squares

Chewy chocolate oat squares: a tasty mix of flapjack and cake

Chewy chocolate oat square flapjack white and milk chocolate cake recipe uk

This week’s recipe comes from GoodtoKnow. I’ve haven’t tried a mixture of flapjack and cake before, but this recipe produces a chocolatey treat with an incredibly moreish texture.

Ingredients (makes 16 to 32 chewy chocolate oat squares)
