They are amazing. Condensed milk in flapjacks - who knew?

Even confirmed flapjack-hating DS tried them and declared them to be amazing grin

Ooooo do you have the recipe? Sound delicious and very fatteningwink

I will link to it once I am back on the PC. It must, indeed, be amazingly fattening. I am relying on bottomless pit DS to eat most of them.

It's the one she posts on here - I made a double batch, having no use at all whatsoever for half a tin of condensed milk. I put glace cherries in half of them, for DD, who has yet to eat any, and left the other half plain and DS has scoffed half the batch already shock

I tried them a year or so back, I'm afraid they got a universal thumbs down and ended up in the bin (asssuming it's the same recipe from the condensed milk reference, I got it from a MN thread). With apologies to Soupy, but I'm definitely sticking to the conventional butter and syrup.

That could be why I hated the flapjacks, I think condensed milk is horrible, just assumed it would turn to caramel but you could taste it really strongly in th flapjacks.

It makes very good vanilla ice-cream when combined with whippedcream and vanilla though.

Oh ive made these too and they were lovely. When i use butter and syrup they come out like concrete.

Oh stealth i just noticed its you. <waves>

I hate to mess with a good theory, but I hate condensed milk too (hence having no use for half a tin) and I can't taste it at all - and neither can DS, who hates milk in all forms. Maybe you didn't boil it enough to caramelised it?

Maybe, can't see me trying it again though.

stealthsquiggle Wed 20-Feb-13 22:10:18

Fair enough! I can't see me getting away with not doing them again grin

Ooh this sounds good! I love flapjack. And condensed milk. I ate a whole tin of condensed milk with a spoon the other week blush but I'm pregnant so it's okay

Ah yes! Haven't made them for ages though... they're delish!
