Made these this morning and took them into work, they were a HUGE success. Everyone loved them, coming back for seconds. Didn't have any melting chocolate for the top, so I just sprinkled chocolate chips on top just a few minutes before removing from oven. Great recipe.

Recipe was a huge success. I didn't have any raisins but just used a mixed fruit mixture, which turned out yummy! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Evie. I did not get to try this myself but it smelled really good (It was in the back of the car all day - very tempting) Gave them to a supplier and my order was filled and the car was loaded for me - the florentine slice MUST be good to get that service. THanks again will be bribing with it again soon!!!!
