It’s been two months since the Post aus meiner Küche chocolate challenge. For those of you who haven’t heard about Post aus meiner Küche before, the idea is that every two months there is a new theme and everyone who signs up receives the name and address of someone to swap with. What is it you’re meant to swap? Something you made in your kitchen of course! You package it up nicely, send it off in the designated week, then sit back and wait for the postman to buzz you door in return. So, this time the challenge was ‘very berry’. I immediately decided I wanted to make some good old Scottish flapjacks (also because I have been craving some myself, so I could just make a double batch^^), though the idea almost came to an end when I realised I needed golden syrup, which is not exactly easily accessible in Germany. But then I remembered the gourmet food court at the Kaufhof department store, and the flapjacks were back on track.
I made one batch with 100g dried cranberries + 50g crushed frozen raspberries, and one batch with 100g frozen blueberries + 50g chopped hazelnuts.
