I genuinely believe that if aliens ever visit our planet, the first thing we should do – is give them chocolate. I can’t think of any special relationship that would be better built on, than a bridge of chocolate. Let’s be honest, no-one is going to be declaring war with a mouth full of scrumptious chocolatey goodness. So, if that ever happens – this recipe would be my peace offering. My new alien friends would take one taste and then we’d hold hands and skip off into the sunset together.
