Chocolate Hobnobs | BasicallyBakes

  1. Now we're coming into autumn and winter is just around the corner it's the perfect time for hot drinks and a little treat. Chocolate hobnobs have always been a favourite of mine, I could quite happily eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 
125g Unsalted butter
80g Brown sugar
2 tbsp Golden syrup
100g Quick oats 
100g Wholemeal flour
1/2tsp Baking soda
1/2tsp Baking powder
220g Chocolate
20g Unsalted butter

Step 1: Firstly preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Step 2: Next, place the 125g of unsalted butter and 80g of brown sugar into a bowl, beat together until pale and smooth. 

Step 3: Now add in the 2 tbsp of golden syrup and beat again.

Step 4: On a low speed mix the 100g of oats, 100g of wholemeal flour, 1/2tsp of baking powder and 1/2 tsp of bicarbonate of soda.

Step 5: Using spoons, or your hands if you don't mind getting too messy, form little balls and pop them onto the lined baking tray. Flatten then out until they're around 2 inches, making sure you leave room for the cookies to spread out. 

Step 6: Place them into the oven for 12-15 minuets until golden brown and then leave to cool for around 20 minuets.

Step 7: Next, melt together the 220g of chocolate and 20g of unsalted butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of boiling water.

Step 8: Finally, spoon a tablespoon of chocolate onto each cookie and spread out evenly. Allow the chocolate to set before serving with a nice warm cup of tea.
