    Juenessa's Note:

    This is a wonderful treat for people who love the combination of chocolate and orange. It brings back wonderful memories of me cooking in the kitchen with my mom, when I was a little girl.

      Whoo-hoo-hoo, what a treat! I made these in about 5 minutes- the easiest part of my Christmas baking. I subbed agave nectar for corn syrup. They roll so perfectly and I think the prettiest balls are the ones I rolled in a mixture of red&green dyed sugar. This is a chocolaty, orangy keeper! Thanks so much!

      I can't wait to share these with my mom as one of her favorite flavor combinations is orange and chocolate. I can't believe how easy this recipe is... no cooking necessary. At first you taste the chocolate and then a second later the orange hits. I think these will satisfy any chocolate craving you may have. I tried rolling in the powdered sugar but the granulated sugar was so much prettier. They sparkled!
