Fairtrade Florentines

Sweets & Puddings

Fruit & Nut Florentines





These fruit & nut florentines take just 5 minutes of prep & are the best way to use up odds & ends of any chocolate bars, nuts & dried fruits you’ve got in the cupboards. Think of them as a Spring Clean Recipe! By making these, you’re actually ticking off a kitchen chore!

I used Fairtrade chocolate & devoured it with turmeric & ginger tea. For chocolate, check out Divine Chocolate Cocoa Loco, for herbs and spices, Pukka herbs & Wunder Workshop & for nuts Zaytoun, who are all doing amazing things in the communities where they source their ingredients.

  1. Put a heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water (Bain Marie) & add your chocolate, broken up, into the bowl, allowing to gently melt.
  2. Once melted & smooth, cover a plate with baking paper & spoon the chocolate into disks onto the paper. Then roughly chop your nuts & sprinkle on top with the raisins/sultanas and anything else you might fancy.
  3. Pop in the fridge for about 30 mins to cool and harden up. Serve chilled.


300g dark chocolate
Large handful of flaked/whole almonds or a mix
Handful of dried fruit like raisins/sultanas/goji berries
Small handful freeze dried raspberries
