For the biscuit base

  • 85 g Butter
  • 40 g Golden caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 115 g Plain flour
  • 1 Ground cinnamon

For the topping

  • 25 g Butter
  • 25 g Light brown soft sugar
  • 25 g Golden syrup
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 25 g Plain flour
  • 20 g Raisins
  • 40 g Chopped nuts
  • 75 g Milk chocolate


  • Begin with the biscuit base as this will need to chill a while. Place the butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl and beat until creamy. Add the flour and cinnamon and mix together. Make into a ball, cover and chill for around an hour.
  • While chilling, start on the florentine topping. Melt the butter, sugar, golden syrup and salt in a pan. Once melted take from the heat and mix in the flour, stir in the raisins and nuts and leave to cool.
  • Get the dough out and roll to a thickness of around 5mm, cut out circles, remembering they should be bitesize. Place a tsp of the florentine mixture on each biscuit.
  • Place in the Omnia oven (see our tip below!) and bake over a medium flame for 20mins or until the biscuit base is firm. You will need to do this in batches if not using an oven.
  • Leave to cool.
  • Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water, then dip the cooled biscuits into it, covering 1/3 – 1/2 the biscuit. Leave to set Enjoy!


We baked the biscuits in our Omnia muffin mould, we just didn't pop out the moulds and kept the ring flat. This meant the biscuits kept their shape and were easy to pop out after baking!
