I decorated it with broken chocolate because we didn't have much else in the house. They were so easy to make and I hate baking! But anything by Mary Berry seems to go alright, if I can do it so can you! Oh... and the best part is eating them... they taste amazing! They are definitely moreish, I had two in one sitting.

*Sorry if any of the photos are blurry, I think I got a little too excited.*
