  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place butter, sugar, golden syrup and ginger in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 1-2 mins or until butter melts and mixture is well combined. Remove from heat. Add the flour, fig and macadamia and stir to combine.
  2. Step 2

    Spoon six 1-tsp portions of mixture onto the prepared tray, allowing room for spreading. Spread each to a 3cm disc. Bake for 8-10 mins or until golden. Set aside on the tray for 2 mins. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat in 4 more batches with remaining mixture.
  3. Step 3

    Use a round-bladed knife or small palette knife to spread a little chocolate over the base of each cooled florentine. Set aside until set.

    Crunch time

    Pretty florentines are a great choice for making ahead – they’ll stay crunchy in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 month.
