Chocolate Strawberry Slice

When strawberries are in season, they're so good it doesn't take much to turn them into a delicious chocolate treat - just two more ingredients, in fact. This is the most simple dessert and I love having it in my freezer for eating on a whim. 

Makes 1 square Gluten-free, dairy-free & vegan

Step 1: melt chocolate and cashew
 

Break the chocolate up and add it to a saucepan on medium heat with the cashew butter. Let it all melt together slowly. When it's melted, use a fork to whisk it well until smooth - try to get rid of any lumps of cashew butter.

Set it aside to cool a little, while you slice the strawberries. Remove the green tops and slice them into halves and quarters. Add the strawberries to the saucepan and fold them in gently.

Step 2: add strawberries

Line an 8in baking tin with parchment paper. Spread the mixture out evenly in the tin. Pop in the freezer to set for about 2 hours. Then slice into squares.
