I love flapjacks at any time of the year but there’s nothing quite like an Easter flapjack coated in chocolate. This Mini Egg Flapjack is something we’ve made for years and I thought it was about time I shared it with you. It’s a really lovely kids flapjack recipe that kids can bake with just a little adult supervision.

What is a flapjack?

An English flapjack is a baked bar, cooked in a flat oven tin and cut into squares or rectangles, made from rolled oats, fat, brown sugar and usually golden syrup. They’re usually crunchy on the outside, gooey in the middle and utterly moreish. Flapjacks are a really lovely sweet treat and one that reminds me of my childhood.

What do you need for a Chocolate Easter Flapjack?

For this easiest flapjack recipe, we use our typical flapjack ingredients – sugar, butter, golden syrup and oats. We then top with milk chocolate and Cadburys Mini Eggs. You could top this with Cadbury Dairy Milk but we just use any milk chocolate and instead of Mini Eggs you could use any small Easter chocolates. Creme Eggs, little Galaxy Eggs or even Reese’s Eggs would work really well.

If you want an all year round easy chocolate flapjack, not just one to make in March and April, you could top this with any chocolate you wanted. Hearts for a Valentines Flapjack, mini gingerbread men or candy canes at Christmas and Smarties or M&Ms to enjoy throughout the year.

How to make flapjacks

For this chocolate flapjack recipe we melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup. I usually do this on the hob but you could also do it in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl, whichever you prefer. The oats are then added before baking in the oven until golden brown. It then gets topped with melted chocolate and Easter egg toppings.

This is an easy flapjack recipe for children to get involved in, you may just need to supervise the melting processes and make sure they’re safe around the oven! We always melt chocolate in the microwave rather than melting chocolate over a pan of water when the children are involved. But our children love making chocolate flapjacks – they’re so easy and give fantastic results despite not needing long to bake at all.

If you’re looking for a simple twist on a traditional bake, chocolate covered flapjacks are so simple to make with just a little bit more effort that a typical flapjack. This chocolate topped flapjack recipe is easy to tweak with the seasons and it’s one everyone always loves. It smells delicious and tastes great too!
