It is all I can say, and I will add - they should come with a warning!
I added a little too much honey, which meant it didn't set properly, so I served them with a lovely gooey topping, which worked wonders along with the crunchy walnuts and dark chocolate. This recipe is friend and flatmate approved, and then some *smiles*
No-Bake Walnut Florentines
For the florentines:
1/2 cup cocoa butter
3-4 tbsp honey, or syrup (for vegan)
100g walnuts, roughly chopped
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 tsp cardamom
For the chocolate:
4 tbsp cocoa butter
3 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp honey or syrup
1 large tablespoon almond or peanut butter
(or melt 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips)
- Start by heating the 1/2 cup cocoa butter in a small casserole on low heat, stir in the honey/syrup and once melted - turn the heat off and fold in the nuts, cinnamon and cardamom.
- Now, divide the mixture between cupcake cases or silicone moulds. I used small silicone cupcake moulds. Pleace in the fridge to set.
- After a couple of hours, you can make the chocolate: Either melt dark chocolate chips, or make chocolate using the ingredients listed above:
- Melt 4 tbsp cocoa butter along with the nut butter on low heat, once stirred well and melted, turn off the heat and add the honey and cocoa power. Pour over the florentines, and leave to set in the fridge for another few hours or overnight.
Serve, and see if you can keep your paws off of them.... You tell me!
PS - Rose, your recipes are something else!
We are a little over halfway to the weekend, so gotta treat ourselves, ey?
