If you have a Cost Plus World Market nearby, you should be able to get it there. I bought some there not too long ago, and it is very yummy! Here is a link to the website for it, just for any extra info:

Oh my.....I bet the chocolate is delicious with these cookies. I have told myself all day that they are healthy because they have oatmeal in them LOL

Porridge with golden syrup and cream is one of my guilty pleasures....
It has a bit of different taste (better) than corn syrup..

JaneK, I was just getting ready to post about putting golden syrup on oatmeal, but I see you beat me to it! Great minds, and all of that. Or is it greedy bellies?? But for all of you out there, it is absolutely delicious!

This is my first time using golden syrup but the taste is wonderful. I went back today and bought two more bottles. Tonight, my daughter mixed it with peanut butter and made a sandwich. She said it was so much better than peanut butter and honey. She loved it! I can't wait to try it on French Toast. Yum!

If anyone would like to share some recipes, I would love to have them. Thank you!

Plain light and dark corn syrup is not available in the UK. I've found that you can substitute Golden Syrup for it (with a slightly sweeter taste), but that you cannot substitute corn syrup for golden syrup. I agree with everyone who says, "Yummy!"

Sorry I am Australian so its all in metric!!

I made these for DH to take to work as a snack. I found a recipe online but changed it to suit me icon_biggrin.gif These are so yummy and will make ~ 12-16 muesli bars.

Cranberry & Macadamia Muesli Bars

125 grams butter
75 grams soft brown sugar
2 tablespoons Golden Syrup
140 grams rolled oats
75 grams self-raising flour, sifted
160 grams dried cranberries (Crasins)
100 grams macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
60 grams desiccated coconut

150g chocolate (I use dark choc but white or milk will work too)

Set your oven to 160 degrees. Prepare your slice tin (20cm x 30cm) by lining with Glad bake or other baking paper. Leaving some paper overlapping the sides will make it easy to remove the muesli bars later.

In a large mixing bowl, weigh the Oats, flour, cranberries, nuts & coconut. Mix with a spoon until combined.
In a saucepan, on medium heat, melt the Butter, sugar & Golden Syrup in a saucepan. Stir until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved but make sure to not let the mixture boil.

Add the butter mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until its all combined.
Place into the tin, spread out evenly and push down the mixture with the back of a spoon.

Bake for approx 20 mins or until golden brown. It will be soft when you first pull it out of the oven but will firm up once cool.
Allow to completely cool down in the tin.

Place the Chocolate in a microwave safe container and nuke for 20sec. Stir well and return to the microwave for another 10 sec. Stir again. Keep nuking it for 10 sec at a time stirring each time until the chocolate has melted. Pour the chocolate over and spread out evenly. Once the chocolate has set, it can be removed from the tin and sliced into bars.
You can get ~12-16 bars depending on how thick you slice it. These muesli bars are firm on the outside & chewy on the inside. Perfect, mostly healthy snack food! Enjoy! icon_biggrin.gif

I was gonna ask what Corn Syrup was cos I see lots of recipes for it but I had no idea what it was, but looks like that has answered so thanx for that!

Coming off the original subject slightly, I find it really interesting how things that we have here in the UK like Golden Syrup which is something most people here propably use on a daily basis you don't have readily in the US and Vice Versa. Golden Syrup is used for loads of things, I normally have it in my cupboard for making flapjacks, but people have it on cereal, ice cream, in yoghurts, pancakes and so on....anyway just thought I would share!!!

Hi, I'm Mister Paul UK expat living and working in Spain (Baker).

Golden Syrup is not made from cane sugar and water,it's a by-product of the sugar refining process, it is actually partially inverted sugar. I's available in the US made by Lyles in the UK and sold in International stores up and down the country- Whilst Corn Syrup id a reasonable substitute in some recipes, it does not work in others, hope this is useful

See my website www.PaulsRecipes.com

Regards to you all in the US from all of us in Spain
