Dark Chocolate Florentine Cookies

It is that time of year-all kinds of cookies and goodies are everywhere.  Making homemade is always better and it doesn’t have to be difficult.  I won’t lie…these take a little time but they are not difficult and are so worth it!!  The cookie is crispy and delicious on its own, but add the dark chocolate and it is amazing!!  These are great to give to neighbors, take to a party, or eat yourself at home.

Dark Chocolate Florentine Cookies


2/3 cup butter
2 cups quick oats
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup flour
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups dark chocolate chips


Melt butter in a medium saucepan; remove from heat.  Stir in oats, sugar, flour, corn syrup, milk, vanilla and salt.  Mix well.  Drop by level teaspoon about 3 inches apart onto foil lined baking sheets.  Spread thinly with rubber spatula.

Bake at 375 for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool completely on baking sheets on wire rack.  Peel foil from cookies.

Microwave chocolate chips on med-high for 1 minute.  Stir.  Microwave 10-20 second intervals stirring between each until melted.  Stir until smooth.

Spread thin layer of chocolate onto flat side of half the cookies.  Top with remaining cookies-placing flat sides together.

*Makes about 3 1/2 dozen sandwich cookies.
