Chocolate Mincemeat Flapjacks

Mincemeat-2BFlapjacks

Christmas, Flapjacks | 11th December 2014 | By

Not long back from my trip to London, I’m off on another jaunt. This time I’m in Birmingham, sampling hot chocolate at the Christmas Market. Hot on the heels of this I’m off to stay with friends at my old stomping grounds at Leamington Spa. Flapjacks are a firm favourite of one of my hosts, so I thought I’d crack open a jar of last year’s chocolate chilli berry mincemeat and make him some chocolate mincemeat flapjacks – with a little kick.

    I made some mincemeat flapjacks following Dominic’s “mince pie flapjack” recipe, but subbing in my homemade cherry mincemeat. It’s such a good idea! I really like your apple addition though.

      Ooh cherry mincemeat sounds good Alicia. Homemade mincemeat is a revelation, even mincemeat hating CT will eat mine.

    Oh wow these look good! I hadn’t thought of adding chocolate but these look amazing. I’m think another batch of these beauties may need to be baked this weekend x

      They are so easy and so delicious. Much as I love a good mince pie, I’m not at all sure I will find the time to make any this year, so these flapjacks are ideal.

    These sound so good, I bet they are good fresh from the oven with some custard! Lovely bit of chilli too.

    What can I say? These look perfection and a great way to use mincemeat. After my recent foray into chilli in flapjack, I am hooked. That ‘little kick’ makes all the difference!!

      Ah, you are a woman after my own heart Kate – that chilli makes the difference between a mean flapjack and a wicked flapjack šŸ˜‰

    Ooooh, these are super clever – and a good way I suspect to use left over mincemeat too!

    I love a flapjack or two and these would be just right to sustain me while wandering around in the December cold.
