We love this little number to get our chocolate hit whilst feeling the Christmassy season. Trust me, untangling all those Christmas lights and tinsel will feel like a breeze when you have a slice of this heaven to look forward to. Tonight though, I think we’re feeling a cosy night in, so if you fancy joining us, cut yourself a slice, grab a mug of tea and cosy up in front of the fire for the start of the Christmas season.

Enjoy,

Love the supernature team xo
