Panforte is a traditional chewy Italian dessert containing fruits and nuts. It is similar to a florentine but much thicker, or a little like a lebkuchen. Known throughout all Italy, it is associated most especially with the Province of Siena.
Panforte dates back at least to the 13th century, in the Italian region of Tuscany.
Our Nero variant contains cocoa giving it a rich chocolatey flavour.
