homemade hobnob-biscuits


I can officially say with hand on heart that these Home-Made Chocolate Hobnob Biscuits are even better than the shop ones.

These are buttery, nobbly little rounds of hobnob heaven.  With just a few ingredients  including the goodness of  wholemeal flour and oats you can have freshly baked hobnobs on the table in 20 mins.  So delicious served with with a “cuppa”  be it tea or coffee or even ice-cold milk!  These are a seriously yummy, oatey, wholesome treat just perfect for dunking.

Of course everything tastes better with a little chocolate.  So I smothered the top of these with melted milk chocolate and used a fork to give the lines. They looked like the shop hobnobs only much more scrumptious.

I understand from my brother who is now an out and out Bostonian that you can’t get golden syrup in the US so you could substitute it with corn syrup which should work as well

  • On a low speed, mix in the oats, flour, soda, baking powder and salt.
  • Roll small tablespoons of dough into balls and flatten on the tray, until they are about 2 inches in diameter. Leave room between the cookies for spreading. ( I used my baking measurement spoons here)
  • Bake for 10 - 12 minutes, until golden brown. Allow to cool on trays.
  • Melt the chocolate then spoon a teaspoon of chocolate onto one side of the biscuit & use a fork to make the lines in the chocolate.

    Can’t wait to try these cookies! I can’t get over the fact that your kids get 2 weeks off for Easter. We get a 3-day weekend! Hope you and your family are all well. I can’t believe that my trip to Ireland was almost 2 years ago. I would have loved to have met you. I met another FB friend in Dublin over dinner. By the way, I just became a grandmother. Oliver was born March 4th. I just came back from spending a month in Alaska with my daughter, waiting for the arrival and then keeping busy with preparing meals and doing laundry to help her. A new chapter in our lives has begun. Hope you have a nice Easter.
