Florentines


Despite the fact that the recipe was created in Florence during the Renaissance and later exported to France, Florentine biscuits are considered to be a typical French pastry.

These are delicious Florentines which, although they do not look as symmetrical as they do when you buy them in the shop, they taste so much better and are without all the preservatives!

Coated with dark chocolate


They are quite simple to make though slightly "fiddly" with spreading the chocolate on the bottom after they are cooked -well worth the effort though!

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 4 - 6 minutes
Makes: About 18 Florentines

Ingredients
cup sultanas
2 cups Corn Flakes
cup toasted unsalted peanuts, chopped coarsley
160 ml sweetened condensed milk
150 g dark chocolate (I used Lindt 70%)

Method
Preheat the oven to 180 or 170 if fan forced. Line two large trays with baking paper.

Combine sultanas, corn flakes, peanuts, cherries in a large bowl.

Next add the sweetened condensed milk -and if you are like me, eat the balance left in the tin!)

Drop a rounded tablespoon of the mixture on the oven trays, leaving about 4-5 cms in between each.

Each one should look similar to this.

Cooked Florentine before chocolate


Wait till they have cooled down and melt the chocolate - I do this in the microwave instead of the traditional way of a saucepan in water -saves time and washing up.

Spread some chocolate on the bottom of each Florentine and allow to cool to room temperature which is when the chocolate will set -you could make a pattern with a fork in the chocolate if you wanted it to look a bit nicer.
