Ingredients ¾ cup sultanas
2 cups Corn Flakes
¾ cup toasted unsalted peanuts, chopped coarsley
160 ml sweetened condensed milk
150 g dark chocolate (I used Lindt 70%)
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!)
Adding the sweetened condensed milk
Mix till ingredients are all coated with the sweet milk.
Mixture now all mixed
Drop a rounded tablespoon of the mixture on the oven trays, leaving about 4-5 cms in between each.
Florentines ready to bake
Bake about 4-6 minutes and then cool on the tray.
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.
