Recipe: Sweet and easy Florentines

Planning to do a little baking as a family day activity?

Try these easy to make Florentines.

Florentines are a classic Italian sweet pastry made with nuts mixed with sugar and melted together, often coated on the bottom in chocolate.

It’s a great treat to prepare with the whole family. Kids will love how easy they are to make, the crunchy texture and the chocolate dip. Parents will love the classic flavours and how well they pair with coffee or tea.
