Instructions to make Florentines:
- Heat the oven to 180C/Gas 4. Cut the cherries and ginger, if using, into small pieces. 1. Add the butter, sugar and syrup to a pan, I also added a pinch of salt, and heat gently until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved. 1. Add the chopped cherries and ginger to the flour and mix together with the almonds.
- Add the dry mixture to the butter and syrup mixture and combine well with a wooden spoon or spatula. Line two large baking sheets with baking parchment.
- Place teaspoonfuls of the mixture on to the baking sheets, leaving plenty of room for them to spread. Bake for 10 minutes until dark golden brown, remove from the oven and use a knife to push the edges in so they're not too lacy at the sides. Leave on the baking sheets until hardened, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely and crisp up.
- Melt the chocolate gently in a pan, then dip the undersides of the florentines in it, place upside down back on the wire rack to dry.
- Eat when the chocolate has set.
