Good morning Dosbarth Port Eynon! Welcome back to the second installment of 'Food tasting Friday'!! The twist of this challenge for today is to try something that is made from or contains chocolate which should be a lot easier than last week. I will post some recipes below but you are welcome to look for your own using the internet.  Don't forget our chocolate themed quiz on Quizizz at 12 o'clock - Miss Lewis will send you the code at around 11 am - make sure you have read the information I have posted on chocolate this week. All the staff hope you have a fantastic weekend and we will see you back here on Monday ready for a new food themed week -  if there are any places you would like to visit on our food tour please get in touch.
