Oat Crunchies

Owl shapes are terribly cute! We got our hands on a owl shaped cookie cutter and cut into a tray of freshly baked crunchies. These owl shaped crunchies were decorated with melted chocolate; White Heart Confetti noses; black and white Ready to Roll Fondant eyes; and the wings were detailed using Chocolate Writing Icing.

oat owls.cIngredients:

  • 2 cups Oats, rolled or steel-cut
  • 1 cup Coconut, desiccated
  • 2 Tbs. Sesame Seeds
  • 1 cup Self Raising Flour
  • 3/4 cup Treacle Sugar
  • 50ml Golden Syrup/ Honey
  • 200g Butter
  • Pinch of Salt

For dipping –

  • 150g Chocolate

Melt the butter together with the syrup. Mix together the dry ingredients. Add the butter mixture to the dry ingredients, and mix until the mixture is combined well and sticking together. Press the mixture into a tray to bake. Bake at 180°C for 30-40 minutes.

Allow to cool slightly before cutting into owl shapes. Allow to cool completely and before removing the cut shapes.

Dip the heads of the owls into melted chocolate (melt in the microwave or over a double boiler). Cut out white fondant eyes and add black fondant pupils. Stick the eyes and nose onto the owls using a little of the melted chocolate.
