So with valentines day just around the corner , there
Step One : Weigh out 125g of sunflower spread, 100g of soft dark sugar and 3/4 ( depending on how much of the syrup you ate off the spoon , I know you did ! ) table spoons of golden syrup, into a bowl .
Step Two : Boil some water in the kettle and fill about a third of a sauce pan with it and put in on the stove to heat with the bowl resting on top of the sauce pan .
Step Three : Stir until the sugar has melted and the mixture is smooth and golden brown
Step Four : Weigh out 250g of rolled oats and add them to the mixture about 2/3 table spoons at a time ,mixing them in as you go
Step Five : I could probably say weigh out some dried cranberries about now .. but if I'm honest I just threw them in until there was enough to suit my taste ! But if you want a measurement , about 3 tablespoons :)
Step Six : Grease a baking tray and the grease the inside of a heart shaped cookie cutter.
Step Seven : Place you cookie cutter on the baking tray and spoon in the flapjack mixture and once it's filled up , slowly lift up the cookie cutter and the flapjack mixture holds the shape !
Step Eight : Repeat this with the rest of the mixture
Step Nine : Place the baking tray in the oven at about 180 C for 15 minutes
Step Ten : Take out , leave to cool ( If you're more patient than me ) and enjoy !
