I can't say enough about this recipe, it is soooo good. The texture is almost like a brownie and the orange flavor is perfect! I don't remember where I got this recipe from but I am very grateful!!!!

What can I say??? I took a batch to a party and they disappeared. My second batch became the hit of the neighborhood - i had to give lots away as after one piece, they were way too tempting to keep in the house. Wonderful!! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
