Method

 
Preheat oven to 160°C.
Melt butter, sugar and syrup together and bring to the boil.
Remove from heat and stir in flour, fruit and nuts.
Place teaspoonfuls of mixture on a lightly greased baking tray, leaving enough space for spreading, or spoon teaspoonfuls into a well greased small muffin pan.
Bake for 10 - 12 minutes.
Remove from oven and smooth rough edges with a spatula.
When biscuits feel more firm, lift gently from tray and turn out on a wire rack to cool.
Melt chocolate in bowl over hot water and cool until slightly thickened.
Spread base of cold biscuits with chocolate.
When almost set, create a wavy effect in the chocolate using a fork.
Keep refrigerated.

Tip
When using a muffin pan, press mixture evenly into the holes. The florentines can be stored in the refrigerator with or without chocolate. Place in an airtight container with greaseproof paper separating them.
