Homemade Chocolate Hobnobs Recipe (Easy)

Homemade Chocolate Hobnobs Recipe

Below I will show you an easy Chocolate HobNobs recipe (chocolate coated oatmeal cookies) and a traditional hobnobs version. So, check them out.

 

First, about the Chocolate HobNobs version.

It is with pleasure that I share with you the latest recipe I made here for my blog.

As a teenager, I made a few trips to Britain and I keep an emotional memory of it. This is where I discovered the “Digestive cookies“. It is the must to accompany a cup of tea and these are the essential cookies to prepare the base of cheesecakes.

If you don’t know why they’re called them “Digestive cookies”, it’s because they contain sodium bicarbonate that should help digestion.

Much later, my friend introduced me to the Hobnobs cookies sold by a super-well-known brand in Britain. I fell for their rustic texture and crunchiness. They are prepared with oat flakes, my sweet sin. We always buy some with every trip to Britain and they have become one of my favorite companions for my afternoon cup of tea.

They are available in natural version but also topped with milk chocolate or dark chocolate.

Making them at home has been trotting in my head for a while with a dozen other projects I’m working on currently.

It’s made for the British corner of Yummy and the house is delighted to see our cookie box filled for a few days again.

The result is really very close to the originals. They’re just darker because I used full cane sugar.

How to make these beauties?

Melt the butter and Golden syrup in a saucepan and let it warm.

Put the oat flakes in a Blender type robot and then operate it for a few seconds, just to slightly reduce the flakes.

Add flour, yeast, baking soda and sugar and mix for two seconds.

Add the butter and Golden syrup mixture, milk and operate the robot, until a ball of dough forms.

Spread the dough between two sheets of baking paper (or stretch film), on a thickness of 0.5 cm.

The dough is very soft, make it cool for 30 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 165°C

Make circles of 6 cm and place them on a non-stick baking tray.

Bake for 15-18 minutes. Shortbread is dark enough, to find out if cooking is enough, you need to be able to move them on the plate by pushing them slightly with your finger.

Cool them on a plate.

When the cookies are cold, melt the chocolate and temper it (See note).

Add a teaspoon of melted chocolate to the center of each cookie, spread with the back of the spoon and then equalize with your finger.

Allow to harden at room temperature before putting them in a metal box in which they will be stored for 5 days.

Note on chocolate: I tempered my chocolate to have a more crisp and bright result. For this, I melted it to reach a temperature of 45 to 50°C, I cooled it to 29 ° C and then I raised it to 31/32°C.
