It’s World Chocolate Day and while we firmly believe that it’s acceptable to eat chocolate every day of the year, we also agree it would be sinful not to indulge on this auspicious day.
In particular, those of us in lockdown should mark the occasion by taking the day off work, popping on a clean pair of PJs after showering, snuggling in front of the TV and bingeing on both our favourite show and fave chocolate!
Here, five ways with chocolate for the yummiest day of the year that aren’t your average chocolate cake!
