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.

Method

  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.

Ingredients

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
