Chocolate Crunchies

I attempted to make chocolate chip crunchies last night. The chocolate melted and turned them into crunchies with a hint of chocolate but after a quick taste test this morning by David and myself the general consensus is that they are yummy. Earlier this week I told David that I would make some crunchies without realising how busy this week was going to turn out to be so last night at 9pm I started making crunchies… thank goodness the recipe I found on Sam Linsell’s blog was super easy and quick to make. I just added the chocolate chips at the end.

Here’s how to make them…


  • 230gms butter
  • 1Tbs golden syrup
  • 2 cups of oats
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tub of chocolate chips, (I think next time I’ll use real chocolate chunks)


  1. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees c
  2. Mix the flour, oats and coconut in a bowl
  3. Melt the butter in a small pot and then add the syrup and sugar and heat
  4. When the butter is bubbling add the bicarb and stir through and remove from the heat
  5. Pour the butter mixture into the dry ingredients and stir together by hand
  6. Add chocolate chips and mix into mixture.
  7. Using the back of a metal spoon, gently press the crunchie mixture into a greased or lined baking tray (aprox 30cm x 20cm or similar depending on how thick you like the crunchies)
  8. Bake for 15 minutes at 180 C, then turn the oven down to 160 C and bake for a further 10 minutes until golden brown
  9. Allow to cool in the pan before slicing.

After I took them out of the oven I left them to cool over night before cutting them and they came out perfectly. I definitely recommend this recipe –  I also have a feeling is very similar to my moms recipe. The ingredients and the way they’re made is basically the same if I remember correctly and they taste the same. OM NOM NOM!
