  • Yield: approx. 30 bars


Florentines are so very festive. You can just imagine how impressed your lucky gift recipient will be when you present them with these! They have been kindly shared with us from Tenina‘s Merry Christmix Too book.

“I do love a good Florentine, and may I say, these are amazing. I love the non fiddly approach, especially as Christmas time just seems to get crazier each year…so whip up a batch of these without the fiddle, and you can be gifting in no time flat. (The teachers are going to love getting a little bag of these!)” – Tenina
