Drunken Hobnobs

Kittie’s Drunken Hobnobs!

Makes 24 hobnobs!

  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups porridge oats
  • 250g butter
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

Preheat oven to 180c.

Mix flour, oats and sugar together in a large mixing bowl.
Melt the butter, syrup and water in a pan – once melted stir in the bicarbonate of soda.
Add the butter mixture to the dry ingredients, and combine well.

Make smallish balls – about the size of a large unshelled walnut! Place it on a greased tray and flatten slightly.

Bake at 180oc for about 12 mins – they should be golden, not brown.

Allow them to cool on the tray.
If you put them on foil, you can transfer the foil to a wire rack… then they cool down more quickly… and then you can chow down even quicker! Bonus!

One of the pictures I took the next day – not too hungover – yay!
