Chocolate orange slice

Chocolate and orange is a classic flavour combination and a favorite of mine. These bars are quick to make, contain nourishing fats, and are high in fibre; making it a filling and satisfying snack. This slice keeps together well out of the fridge so makes the perfect accompaniment to a child’s lunch box.
