    Heidi, we are so grateful for you sharing this recipe.  We made our first earth bite in a loaf tin, and added puffed millet to the chocolate layer. We loved the rubble look along with the other earthly layers.  It lasted our family a week for snacks, great for Mum who is training hard at the moment, awesome for my school girl and yum for my little kindy girl too.  We plan on making it this afternoon as our Earth Hour treat tonight.
