This tray bake is the uuuuultimate indulgent treat. So so so chocolatey and delicious, but with only natural sweetness and the goodness of raw cacao. As always this treat is 100% gluten free, and so kind to sensitive tummies. The tray bake can be stored in the fridge for up to a week in an airtight container, however the slices are best eaten when they have been allowed to come to room temperature.
