Orange-Chocolate Cookie Bars

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by MarthaStewartWanabe

Orange and chocolate is one of my favorite flavor combinations. Food Network's, Giada De Laurentiis, made something like this during one of her shows, and it gave me the idea to make my own version. I tested it out on my friends, and they loved it. I hope you enjoy it too!

I, too, am a sucker for a chocolate/orange combo, so this recipe really attracted my attention! So easy to make these WONDERFUL TASTIES! I did, of course, use a BIT more zest than called for, but then . . . Thanks for a great recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my groupmates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #29]
