Timing Facts Preparation time: 30 minutes Cooking time: 10 minutes
3 cups corn flakes or 100 g
1 tablespoon lemon zest
¾ cup sultana or 120 g, golden
1 cup almonds or 125 g, slivered
¾ cup glacé cherries or 120 g, chopped
¼ cup glacé mixed peel or 40 g, chopped
1 tin NESTLÉ® Sweetened Condensed Milk or 397 g
400 g dark chocolate
Combine the cornflakes, lemon rind, sultanas, almonds, glace cherries, mixed peel and NESTLÉ® Sweetened Condensed Milk in a bowl.
Press into a 23cm × 33cm greased tin, lined with baking paper. Bake in a preheated 170 °C oven for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to set in the tray and then transfer on to a wire rack, upside down, to cool completely.
Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Set aside to cool slightly, and then spread over the underside of the Florentine. Cool, chocolate side up on the wire rack until set and cut into pieces.
