The ones that you make for someone’s birthday, a special occasion or just because you need that little extra something they have. There isn’t a layer of this slice that isn’t perfection!

And it all came about over a little pot of cherries. You see I saw this particular pot of cherries on offer in my local health food store and I must confess that curiosity got the better of me. I can’t resist cherries at the best of times and I was sure that something awesome would come from them.

Then of course I bought them home, placed them in the cupboard and proceeded to forget all about them until that is, last week when I was doing a blitz on my baking cupboard and lo and behold I found them!!!! And they were still in date! The original recipe idea I had for them was hidden in the back of last recipe journal so I immediately set to work – hey I didn’t want them to be forgotten again!!

They really do taste amazing and I just love the fruity bite of the cherries next to the smooth creamy almond and rich intensity of the chocolate.

I put the juice to one side and used it in a cherry almond green smoothie the next day – soooooooo good!
