Yes ok I know, this is a blog that focuses on skepticism and critical thinking skills, what am I doing putting up a post about Halloween? Well for the first time in my life I find myself about to celebrate Halloween and I’m really looking forward to doing so. And so as a complete change I thought I would share with you my recipe for Super Yummy Chocolate Tiffin so you can make some for your own Halloween celebrations. I have been reliably informed by my house mates, who keep insisting I make it, that my tiffin recipe is very nice indeed so hopefully you will all enjoy it.
