I came across this recipe on my little sisters hard drive whilst on holiday in Cyprus. She is a super mama and a creative food/desert person. I admire her passion and determination to feed her children treats that are healthy not to mention her abilities as a mama. To all you mamas out there doing a fabulous job and not bending to the likes of nestle or even plain sugar - I salute you.
