Christmas Recipe Chocolate Frogs

Hello beauties,

Today I am going to tell you my favourite dessert recipe of the season!

Frogs – also known as Chocolate haystacks!

They are truly the most amazing thing, ever since I was little every year my Nana has made them for me at Christmas time.
So not only are they delicious they hold a special memory close to my heart!
