Author Notes

Florentines are elegant, colourful and classic. —Liliana

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup sultanas
  • 4 cups cornflakes
  • 200 grams slivered almonds
  • 200 grams glace cherries, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated lemon rind
  • 100 grams cranberries
  • 1 1/2 cups sweetened condensed milk
  • 400 grams dark chocolate
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line 2 large oven trays with baking paper.
  2. Combine all the ingredients expect the dark chocolate in a large bowl.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
