Homemade Chocolate HobNobs

A cup of tea and a chocolate hobnob, it's so fantastically British and so goddamn brilliant!


120g unsalted butter
80g of light brown sugar
2 big teaspoons of golden syrup
100g oats
100g wholemeal flour or regular flour
50g of ground almonds
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoons of salt

For the Chocolate topping

120g of chocolate of your choice
25g of unsalted butter

Preheat your oven to 120 degrees (fan) Add the butter and the brown sugar in a bowl and mix until creamy and smooth.
Mix in the golden syrup and once it's all combined add in all the dry ingredients and mix.

Once everything is is combined take a small amount and roll it into balls. I went for just smaller than golfballs and they ended up being quite hefty so it completely depends on the size you want. Pop them onto greaseproof paper and make sure they are spread apart as they do expand in the oven. Flatten out the balls until they are about 2 inches in diameter then pop them in the oven for 12 minutes.

Once you've boogied on down for 12 minutes (did I really just say that?!) take out your hobnobs and let them cool, don't worry if they're puffy and soft, after a couple of minutes they will flatten out and crisp up.

Grab your chocolate, break it up and add in the 25g of butter and melt either on the hob or in the microwave. Spread generously over your cooled hobnobs then take some of the left over chocolate and pop it in a piping bag for an extra little drizzle and there we are, some homemade chocolate hobnobs just waiting to be dunked in a fine cup of tea!

Let me know if you make these badboys and enjoy dunking!
