Who can resist such a delicate European cookie? We definitely did not! When Clarine’s Florentines offered to send us their famous Almond Brittle on Bittersweet Chocolate for a review and giveaway, we were elated! Sure we get a lot of different products to review, but this in particular was unique. We loved how Clarine, a passionate foodie like us, decided to take the leap and start her own business in 2007 and created Clarine’s Florentines, now located in Berkeley, California.
We received two packages of these handmade cookies that were beautifully wrapped with 6 signature florentines inside. These delicate cookies consist of thinly sliced natural almonds, butter, sugar, honey and cream, baked to a golden brown brittle and then dipped in Guittard chocolate. It has a wonderful caramel flavor with a nutty crunch from the toasted almonds. We enjoyed it simply as a sweet indulgent snack, but it would also go well with a nice scoop of ice cream.
If you are wiping your drool right about now, then we suggest you take a stab at entering this month’s giveaway. Clarine has offered to send two packages of these gourmet Almond Brittle treats to one lucky reader. Once you try it, you can really see how passionate she is about her products and the care and pride she takes in making each cookie. You can also order them directly on her website to cure your own cravings, or as special gifts to loved ones.
