It's week 4, and here at the great Christmas bake off we were set the challenge of making Florentines.

Ingredients...

  • 50g butter
  • 50g demerara sugar
  • 50g golden syrup
  • 50g plain flour
  • 25g cranberries
  • 50g candid peel
  • 50g almonds
  • 200g milk chocolate

This should be enough to make 18 Florentines.

Here's how to make it!.... 

  1. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Place baking paper onto 3 baking trays
  3. Place the butter and sugar into a pan and combine over a medium heat until the butter has melted
  4. Measure out the flour, almonds, cranberries and peel. The cranberries and almonds may need to be finely chopped.
  5. Once the butter has melted take off the heat and gradually add the above ingredients stirring gradually
  6. Teaspoon the mixture onto the baking trays, you should be looking for 6 Florentines to each baking tray. Leave plenty of room around the edge as they spread really quickly!
  7. Place in the oven for between 8-10 minutes until golden brown
  8. Break the milk chocolate down into chunks and melt
  9. Once the Florentines are cooked leave to cool on a cooling rack and then add the melted chocolate to one side of the Florentine, making sure you cover the whole biscuit
  10. Leave to set and enjoy! - we've just taken a box into the office, demolished within 5 minutes with some great feedback, they were luscious.
