Spread the bases with chocolate...
Make a swirly pattern on the bases with a fork...
Then try not to eat them all...
Oh and if you have some left over chocolate why not make some chocolate freckles. Just spread little circles of chocolate on baking paper then cover with 100s and 1000s and allow to set. Yummy...
