Florentines


Jace said that these were the best he's ever tasted. I reckon they're pretty great too, and so easy.

Makes 18 approx.

3/4 cup (120g) sultanas
2 cups (60g) corn flakes
3/4 cup (110g) unsealed roasted peanuts, chopped finely
1/2 cup (125g) finely chopped glacé cherries
2/3 cup (160ml) sweetened condensed milk
150g dark chocolate, melted

Preheat oven to 180C.
Combine sultanas, corn flakes, peanuts, cherries & milk in medium bowl; mix well.
Place slightly rounded tbsps of mixture about 5cm apart on lined oven trays.
Bake in oven or about 10 min or until lightly browned & cool on trays.
Spread base of each biscuit with chocolate & allow to set.
If desired, make wavy lines in chocolate with fork before it sets.

Variations: 
Use dried cranberries or other dried fruit instead of sultanas.
Substitute slivered almonds for the peanuts.
