Chocolate Dipped Almond Crunchies

This is the easiest recipe ever! The kids love to make these.
Usually, crunchies are made in a shallow dish and cut up into squares but I decided to make them ‘all the same size’ in a muffin tray. After visiting Gameal’s I tried some variations of my own. Anything goes here…


Recipe: Chocolate Dipped Almond Crunchies


  • 175g butter
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 slab of dark chocolate, for dipping
  • 1/2 tsp butter


  1. Melt butter and syrup together.
  2. Add bicarbonate and stir until it froths.
  3. Mix dry ingredients into the melted butter and add the almond extract.
  4. Mix well.
  5. Gently press the mixture into a muffin tray.
  6. Bake in the oven at 180ยบC for 20-30 minutes.
  7. When the crunchies turn light brown, remove from the oven.
  8. Switch off the oven and leave crunchies in for another 10 minutes to dry out.
  9. Allow to cool before removing from the tin.
  10. Melt the chocolate with 1/2 teaspoon of butter.
  11. Dip the bottom of the crunchies into the chocolate and allow to cool for the chocolate to harden.
