Florentines make a beautiful gift whatever the occasion is, be it Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Valentine’s day. They are gorgeous, chewy, and truly delightful. With lots of almonds, this Chocolate-Dipped Florentine recipe is one of the best dessert options.



1 3/4 oz unsalted butter, plus more for greasing (softened)

1 3/4 oz brown sugar

1 3/4 oz plain flour

1 3/4 oz golden syrup

2 3/4 crystallized ginger (finely chopped)

1 3/4 oz flaked almonds

1 orange (zest only)

7 oz dark chocolate

2 1/2 oz white chocolate


  1. Preheat the oven to 380 degrees Fahrenheit and then line and lightly grease 3 baking trays.
  2. Place the softened butter, golden syrup, and sugar in a saucepan. Heat until the sugar has dissolved. Make sure that there are no more granules.
  3. Remove from heat and add the ginger, flour, almonds, and orange zest. Combine thoroughly.
  4. With the mixture, pop 6 equal mounds on each tray and bake for about 8 minutes or until light golden in the center and slightly darker on the outside.
  5. Leave to rest for about 5 minutes before moving them.
  6. Melt the chocolate in separate bowls.
  7. Place the chocolate bowls over saucepans of simmering water. Be sure for the bowls not to touch the water. You can also melt the chocolate in the microwave.
  8. Take each biscuit and dip half in. Dip some in the dark chocolate and the rest of the biscuits in white chocolate.
  9. Allow the chocolate to set before serving.


  • When popping the mounds on the tray, arrange them nicely, leaving enough room for them to spread during baking.
  • Put the chocolate in bowls deep enough for dipping.
