Preheat the oven to 180ºC.

Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a small pot over a low heat; stir to melt the butter and dissolve the sugar.

In a bowl, stir together the dry ingredients, add the melted butter mixture and stir to combine.

Place small dollops of the mixture onto the baking tray spaced well apart; bake for 8–10 minutes, remove from the oven and, with the back of a tablespoon, flatten into rounds. Allow to cool completely.

Spread the melted chocolate onto baking paper; allow to cool and when set, cut out stars with cookie cutters and set aside.

Turn Florentine rounds so the undersides face up; gently spread with a little of the extra melted chocolate and top with chocolate stars, then place chocolate side up on a cooling rack.

To assemble:
Place a scoop of vanilla ice cream on a Florentine, top with a second Florentine and sandwich together.

To serve:
Serve immediately, decorated with a sprinkling of silver balls.
