Nothing says how much you care than a homemade present at Christmas! And these mixed fruit and nut Florentines are so quick and easy. Pop them in a cellophane bag with some ribbon to make them look really professional.

Fabulous! These are my go to biscuit - the recipe is easy to follow and results are amazing! Thank you for this amazing recipe!

Butter

25g

Light brown soft sugar

25g

Plain flour

2tsp

Mixed dried fruit and nuts such as apricots, cranberries, toasted flaked almonds, desiccated coconut etc.

150g

Dark chocolate

85g

Step 1 of 4

Preheat the oven to 180°C, (160°C for fan ovens) or Gas Mark 4.

Step 2 of 4

Melt the butter and sugar in a non-stick saucepan. Add the condensed milk and heat until just bubbling, stirring all the time. Stir in the plain flour and mix until smooth. Add the dried fruit and nuts and mix well.

Step 3 of 4

Place teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto parchment lined baking sheets and bake for about 12 minutes until turning golden brown at the edges. Leave to cool on the tray.

Step 4 of 4

When cool, melt the chocolate then let it cool until it becomes thick and spreadable. Spread each biscuit with chocolate on the flat side and then drag a fork through the chocolate to make wavy lines.

Dark chocolate works really well but use a selection of different chocolates if you like. Try spiced orange or milk or white!
