Florentines are elegant, colourful and classic. —Liliana
What You'll Need
glace cherries, chopped
finely grated lemon rind
1 1/2 cups
sweetened condensed milk
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line 2 large oven trays with baking paper.
Combine all the ingredients expect the dark chocolate in a large bowl.
Place heaped tablespoonfuls onto the baking trays, leaving plenty of room for spreading. . Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Melt the chocolate by placing in a heatproof bowl over simmering water. Allow to cool a little to thicken, then dip the bottoms of the Florentines into the chocolate to cover. You can use a fork to make a wiggly pattern on the chocolate if you like. Turn upside down onto a wire rack until chocolate sets.
