The Best Hedgehog Slice

The first time I ever had a Hedgehog slice was from my school’s canteen a.k.a the tuckshop (why it was called this, I don’t know).  It was the best slice!  The portion size was huge and generous.  It was also full of chunks of biscuits in a yummy chocolate mixture with a hint of coconut.  Since…
