Chocolate Orange Flapjacks

Chocolate Orange Flapjacks

These Chocolate Orange Flapjacks are delicious: filled with dark chocolate chips, with a tangy orange flavour and topped with Terry’s chocolate orange. 

Chocolate Orange is such a delicious flavour combination and features a lot in my baking (see the bottom of this post for examples). Due to the success of my Mars Bar flapjacks I wanted to create a similar recipe using Terry’s chocolate orange, and here they are my Chocolate Orange Flapjacks which are seriously moreish.

There has been an awful lot of bad press about sugar recently, and now according to the government guidelines, adults should not consume more than 7 tsp of sugar a day.
