The chocolate sauce has worked in the past for me. I’ve also had success with a tiny chocolate sprinkle placed on the alveolar ridge. ‘ee’ is also definitely the vowel that I’ve found helps to get everything in the right position so words like ‘eat’, ‘feet’ with an instruction to keep everything in place after the ‘ee’ and just move the very front of the tongue!
