Apricot & Ginger Florentines

  • 80g Whitworths Golden Apricots, finely chopped
  • 80g Whitworths flaked almonds
  • 50g Whitworths Crystalised Fiery Ginger, finely diced
  • 25g coconut flakes, broken into small pieces
  • 45g dairy free butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 50g plain flour – gluten free if needed
  • 60g dark brown sugar
  • 150g dark chocolate, melted

Ready… Steady… Bake…

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C Fan.
    Line two large baking trays with baking paper.
  • Place the butter, sugar and maple syrup into a saucepan and heat on a medium heat until the butter has melted, and the sugar has dissolved.
  • Take off the heat and add the flour, apricots, ginger, flaked almonds and coconut flakes. Mix thoroughly to combine.
  • Scoop a small amount into the palm of your hand and shape into a rough ball. Place this on the lined baking trays ensuring there is space between each. Flatten each Florentine to a maximum of 2cm in thickness.
  • Place in the oven onto the middle shelf and bake for 12 minutes until lightly golden around the edges and the Florentines are making a sizzling sound. Remove from the oven and leave to completely cool on the tray.
  • When the Florentines have cooled, melt the dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water - making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Stir the chocolate occasionally until it has all melted.
  • Cover the cooling rack in baking paper. Carefully dip the underside of each Florentine into the chocolate and place it on the baking paper.
  • Leave to cool and set, then repeat for a double delicious layer of dark chocolate. Leave so the chocolate sets completely before serving.
  • Store in an airtight container and eat within 5 days.
