This means that some of the other cereals have been left all alone in the pantry. So, I decided to find a recipe to use up the left over cornflakes.

Florentines are usually made with flaked almonds. I didn’t have any in the pantry – but I did have some macadamia nuts (surprise, surprise!).  They work brilliantly with the sweetness of the dried fruit and crunch of the cornflakes.
