With the extra-long June holiday looming some homemade goodies will keep  children entertained. Bear in mind this time in the kitchen will be  for personal pleasure so sweet, chocolatey items that require little  effort will be winners. The first treat that springs to mind is a  deliciously simple chocolate fridge tart. A rich, textured flavour that  is most dad’s favourite. Remember to save him a slice!
