Chocolate Fudge Dip vegan

5-Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Dip {vegan}

“Being on holidays from work is fun, isn’t it, Mummy?” said my 4-year old to me the other day. “Work?” said I. “Do you mean preschool?” “Yep.” said he. It had dawned on him that being home meant that he could ‘play all day with mummy’. Not having preschool three days a week meant we could spend…
