Hi! Just answering your call for dried cranberry recipes.http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/15300/fruity+chocolate+no+bake+sliceI made this for the chillens a while ago - but they didn't even get a look-in on them. And yes, i appreciate the fact that they can take something healthy, and then cover it in chocolate and thickened cream. But it tastes good!Congrats on the BPS thing!


Sorry - just repairing that link for you...http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/15300/fruity+chocolate+no+bake+slice
