Preheat the oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan and line a 23cm square tin with parchment paper.
In a medium pan, add the butter, sugar and golden syrup and melt over a low heat until smooth. Leave to cool for about 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, add the rolled oats, chocolate chips and easter chocolates and mix well. Pour the butter mixture over and stir to combine. Firmly press the mixture into the base of the tin and bake in the oven for 20–25 minutes, until it starts to brown around the edges and firm up. Leave to cool fully in the tin.
Carefully drizzle the melted milk chocolate over the flapjacks in the tin. Scatter over the easter chocolates and chill the flapjacks in the fridge. Cut into squares with a sharp knife and enjoy.
