Chocolate Florentine

Chocolate Florentine

Serves: 6 – 12 depending on size of florentines.

Difficulty: 2/5

These treats are crispy, buttery, nutty, and oh-so-addictive! These are best made in small batches, making them a fun activity to do with your friends and enjoying fresh.

Ingredients:

1 stick of butter (4oz)

2 tbsp heavy cream

1/2 cup corn syrup

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup sliced almonds, slightly crushed

1/4 rolled oats

1 dark chocolate grön bar, grated

How it’s done:

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350°. In a medium saucepan add butter, heavy cream, corn syrup and sugar and boil for 2-3 minutes. Then add in the almonds and oats and boil for another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

Step 2
Let mixture cool just a touch. Scoop 6 tablespoon sized dollops onto greased parchment paper, spaced out evenly and with plenty of room between each scoop. Flatten slightly.

Step 3
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until it’s an even caramel color. Remove from oven and let cool completely. While that batch is cooking, continue to prepare another greased parchment paper and you can begin to repeat Step 2 before your mixture cools too much.

Step 4
Place a long piece of un-greased parchment on a hard flat surface. Grate the grön bar, reserving a tablespoon of the chocolate. Melt the rest of the chocolate in 5 to 10 second bursts in the microwave until chocolate becomes just soft enough to stir. Sprinkle in reserved chocolate. Spread immediately on the cooled cookies. Place chocolate side down on parchment and let cool completely before serving.

Serve with: A bold coffee or crumbled on top of ice cream (or all three together!)

Grön Bar Suggestions: We are big fans of the Dark Chocolate 1:1 Bar (with 50mg of THC and 50mg of CBD) as the effects of THC and CBD combined are heavenly. However, the Dark Chocolate THC bar (with 50mg of THC) is equally delicious and has a lower price point (due to the absence of CBD). For those folks looking for the medicinal effects of CBD without THC, we love our PURE CBD Dark Chocolate Bar (with 50mg of CBD and no THC). See our bars and where to find them here.
