Double Chocolate Florentines

Turn our Halo & Swoon Anzac Cookie mix into festive florentines by adding pistachios, cranberries, almonds and chocolate chunks. Coat the backs in more melted dark chocolate for a delicious treat!

Our festive Double Chocolate Florentine cookies are jewelled with cranberries, almonds and pistachios. We've also added dark chocolate chunks to take them up a notch, and of course coated them in more chocolate!

Florentines are a classic at Christmas, but are also perfect for any festive occasion and make the perfect edible gift.

Get creative and swap in any nuts or dried fruits of your choosing. They're also delicious coated in milk or white chocolate if you prefer.
