When we were younger, my sister and I lived next door to 2 boys who were the same age as we were. We would climb the wall between our houses to play and sometimes we would even play ball games over the wall. I remember spending a lot of time with them having fun. We would climb trees, have picnics on the roof or in the Rolls Royce and it was there that I learnt to play chess. At the same time I was an avid reader, and my books included the Secret Seven series. I remember lying in bed at night and imagining that there was a secret passageway into our neighbours house. If I just concentrated hard enough, the passage would open and I would be able to walk there at any time. Of course, this never happened! But if it had, I would have been able to do a lot of things without anyone knowing 🙂 One thing I do not need to hide and keep a secret are these Chocolate Candies. They are a sweet treat that are good for you! They contain ingredients one could group as super foods, and they taste good. I hope you give them a try and enjoy them.
What did you imagine when you were a child?

I have made these using 15g cacao nibs, 45g goji berries and 60g dried blueberries with great results.
