Top of the morning to you MNB family, particularity those Irish Sporty Sisters! In the lead up to Saint Patrick’s Day we thought what better way to celebrate than with chocolate (any excuse will do, right?). Last year, we brought you two lean and green recipes to get you in the Irish spirit (if you missed it, you can catch them here), so we thought we’d mix it up this year and decided to dish up a sweet treat this time around. Here is our Clean & Green Saint Patrick’s Day Chocolate Bark!
