    50g Butter

    50g Soft Dark Brown Sugar

    50g Golden Syrup

    50g Plain Flour

    50g Dried Cranberries

    25g Raisins

    50g Walnuts, chopped

    20g Flaked Almonds

    150g Milk/Plain Chocolate

    Method

    Pre-heat the oven to 160°C Fan/Gas Mark 4.

    Place the butter, sugar and syrup into a small, heavy based saucepan and stir over a low heat until melted, then remove from the heat.

    Slowly whisk in the flour, then add the remaining ingredients, except the almonds and chocolate.

    Drop teaspoons of the mixture onto a greased and lined baking tray, leaving space for the mix to spread.

    Gently flatten the Florentines with the back of a teaspoon and sprinkle with flaked almonds.

    Bake for 10-12 minutes until just set. Allow to cool a little, then carefully place on a wire tray.

    Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water.

    Turn the Florentines over and spoon over the chocolate. When the chocolate is set, turn and serve the Florentines fruit side up.
