Sometimes it can be hard to decide whether to have something fruity or something chocolatey for dessert. If you’re the kind of person who finds it hard to pick, this recipe has you covered. A tangy lemon and chocolate pie combines the fresh taste of lemon with the sweet flavours of chocolate.

While it’s not a combination you usually see, this pie really is mouthwateringly good.
