525g unsalted butter
525g light brown sugar
4½ tbsp golden syrup
675g rolled oats
9 tbsp cocoa powder

Essential kit

You will need: a 33 x 22cm baking tray.


Grease and line a 33 x 22cm baking tray. Preheat the oven to 150°C/130° (fan)/300F°/gas mark 2.

Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup together in a pan over a gentle heat. Remove from the heat and fold in the oats and cocoa powder. Carefully pour the mixture into the tin and even the surface.

Bake in the centre of the oven for approximately 40 minutes, until bubbles have formed on the surface. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tray. Cover with a tea towel and leave to set fully overnight.

When you are ready to serve, cut into the desired number of squares.
