“Picnic”

Another healthy take on a classic.

Our “picnic” bar was inspired by the famous Cadbury’s chocolate bar. Whilst the ingredients used in our recipe bears no resemblance to the original, the taste and texture is just as delicious… Even better if you ask us!

This recipe was created in collaboration with Sophie from Coconut and Bliss.
