For the florentine slice

  • 2 cups cornflakes
  • ¾ cup thread coconut
  • ⅔ cup condensed milk
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup chopped dried apricots
  • ½ cup sultanas
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup slivered almonds — toasted
  • ¼ cup chopped pistachios
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 200g milk chocolate


For the florentine slice

  • Preheat the oven to 170°C (150°C fan bake). Line a 28 x 18cm slice tin with baking paper.
  • Place all the ingredients except the milk chocolate in a large bowl and mix until well combined.
  • Transfer to the prepared tin and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 20–25 minutes until golden. Leave to cool.
  • Break the chocolate into a microwave-safe dish and microwave for 1 minute. Stir, then microwave in 20-second bursts, stirring between bursts, until melted and smooth.
  • Spread the chocolate evenly over the slice and refrigerate until set.
  • Cut into 16 pieces using a hot knife (this will stop the chocolate from cracking).
