12 Florentines


  • 2 baking trays, lined

  • medium bowl

  • small saucepan

  • wire rack



Preheat your oven to 160°C Fan, 180°C Non-Fan or Gas Mark 4. Line 2 baking trays with parchment and set to the side.
Add the gourment mixed fruit (100g), nuts (25g walnuts & 25g almonds) into a bowl, mix and set to the side.
In a small saucepan, add the butter, golden syrup, Gem brown sugar and stir over a gentle heat until melted and combined. To this add the flour and beat with a wooden spoon to remove lumps.
Spoon this mixture over the Gem fruit & nuts and mix.
Divide the mix into 12 and roll into balls. Place 6 per tray allowing space between them as they will spread during baking.
Flatten the balls slightly and pop into the preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Once baked, remove and allow to cool on the tray. When cold, remove and place on a wire rack.
To decorate, melt the dark and white chocolate. Spoon some of the white chocolate into a small piping bag to help create the spider's web. Turn the florentines upside down and on the smooth side spread on some melted dark chocolate to cover.
While the dark chocolate is still wet, starting in the centre of the florentine, pipe on a swirl of white chocolate and using the back of a small knife or a toothpick, drag outwards to create a feathered effect to resemble a spider's web. Allow the chocolate to set.
