OATY CHOCOLATE BISCUIT SANDWICHES
Makes approx 18 sandwiches (36 biscuits)
200 grams butter, softened
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 & 1/2 cups whole oats
200 grams good quality dark chocolate
1/2 cup cream
Preheat the oven to 180°C and line 2 baking trays.
In a large bowl beat butter and sugars until light and creamy. Add the egg, golden syrup and vanilla extract and mix. In a seperate bowl combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Then add to butter mixture and combine. Add the oats and mix well.
Roll dough into balls about 2 teaspoons in size. Place on a baking tray with a 3 - 4cm gap between each biscuit (8 per tray) and gently press down until around 5mm in height. Bake 2 trays of biscuits at a time for 5-8 minutes or until golden, swap trays over half way through. Transfer to a cooling rack until completely cold.
Bring a pot of water to the boil and reduce to a simmer. Place a heat proof bowl on top of the pot making sure the water isn't touching the base of the bowl. Add the chocolate to the bowl and stir until fully melted. Add the cream and stir until combined. Place in the fridge to thicken, this should take 10-15 minutes.
Smear a heaped teaspoon of ganache between biscuits and sandwich together.
