The Christmas Magic of Chocolate Florentines

A box of Florentines is a Christmas classic and no one could argue that they make an amazing present for a loved one. Florentines are definitely some of the most famous cookies in the world, with hundreds of recipes on how to make them, however, these sweet treats also bring a sense of mysticism with them with regards to their origin. As their name (Florentines) suggests that they were first made in Florence they were considered an Italian dessert, but there were also claims that the recipe originated in Tuscan. Things get even more complicated as others claim that Florentines, as they are made nowadays, are actually a French dessert that was created in the late 17th century as a treat for French royalty. Nevertheless, Florentines are indeed a treat worthy of a royal.

Whether they are French or Italian is a matter we will leave to the experts, because for the team of The Highland Chocolatier the best Florentines are actually Scottish! Made according to our own special recipe, with the best possible ingredients and luxury chocolate our Chocolate Florentines presented in beautiful chocolate gift boxes make for an amazing Christmas present for your loved ones.
