Florentines

    50 minutes

    A florentine is a sweet, chewy biscuit made with cornflakes, dried fruit, flaked almonds and chocolate. I have used glace cherries and dried apricots but you can use any combination of dried fruit you like such as dried fig and cranberry or sultana and dried pineapple or blueberries.
