White Chocolate & Cherry Florentines
I do love a good Florentine, and may I say, these are amazing. I love the non-fiddly approach, especially as Christmas time just seems to get crazier each year … so whip up a batch of these, without the fiddle and you can be gifting in no time flat. The teachers are going to love getting a little package of these!
(Oh and don't forget to save a few for the fam bam, or there may be some household disappointment.)
