Honey Nut Slice

OK, I made this for the first time yesterday and am about to go and make another batch. I’m going to put it in a bigger tin so it goes thinner because essentially this is like a florentine and well, me and florentines go way back.

I can’t remember where I got this recipe from – it’s one of those ripped out of something a lifetime ago so apologies to the originator but thanks as well. My life is so much better for having this recipe in it.

I hadn’t bought enough pistachios so I threw in some pecans. So good. So very very good.

Honey Nut Slice

Honey Nut Slice
You just need to make this.
  • 250 g butter
  • ⅔ cup caster sugar
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • ⅓ cup cream
  • ⅓ cup brandy
  • 300 g flaked almonds
  • 150 g shelled unsalted pistachios or your nut of choice, I more often than not use pecans
  • 100 g dark chocolate
  1. Preheat your oven to 200C and line the base and sides of 19x20cm (or thereabouts) tin, then grease it well
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan then add the sugar, honey, cream and brandy
  3. Bring it all to the boil
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the nuts
  5. Pour it into the tin and bake for 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown
  6. Remove from the oven and let it cool
  7. Melt the chocolate and then drizzle it over the top
  8. Refrigerate and then cut into bite size pieces - store in the fridge.
  9. Eat yourself into a diabetic coma.

    Looks yummy but I think I’ll halve it. As in forget the first 4 ingredients and hide in a dark corner and scoff the last 4 – though might double the 5th ingredient. We intited my FIL to lunch and he has taken it upon himself to invite “others” and is now planning to move in for a couple of days. It is going to be ugly. Might need you to post a recipe for a cake with a file in it?

    • DUUUUDE-what is it about this time of year that causes people (ie your FIL) to behave so inappropriately. Cake recipes are coming.

  • You know, if you weren’t already married, I would propose.

    • I did think of you when I made this. In fact I made a second batch today and while I did burn it a bit (goddamn it) ZOMG so good – I made it a lot thinner so it is even more florentine-ish.

  • Im currently drooling on my laptop.

    • It’s so freaking good. Have had to physically extricate myself from the kitchen to stop eating it.

  • Mmmm, florentines are my mums absolute fave. Might have to make a batch of this for her for Christmas.
    Delish love!!
