  • 50 g plain flour

  • 25 g dried sour cherries chopped
  • 75 g California Walnuts chopped
  • 50 g butter
  • 50 g golden syrup

  • 175 g white chocolate melted


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Line 2 large trays with baking paper.
  • Mix together the flour, cherries and walnuts in a bowl. Place the butter in a small saucepan with the syrup and sugar and heat until melted and sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and stir into the dry mixture.
  • Place 15 tablespoons onto the 2 trays with plenty of space between them, bake for 6-7 minutes. Allow to harden before removing to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Dip or spread the base of each Florentine with the white chocolate and allow to cool and set.

Cooks tip

  • Try using dark or milk chocolate instead of the white. Make mini Florentines for snacks or buffets.
