Fabulous treats, BK! They reminded me of another bar I used to make all the time that has the same texture with a different flavor profile (and loved, by the way). I was a little unsure about all the nuts in these, but once I tried them, I would definitely recommend not leaving them out. The hazelnuts were perfect with all the chocolate and orange. These were good while still a bit warm, but the chocolate backs off a bit and lets the orange stand out more once the bars are fully cooled or even slightly chilled. Definitely a keeper, and a good choice if you're looking for something a bit more sophisticated but not too fussy to make. Thanks for posting! Made for Sweet December Tag 2014
Baby Kato, I really like the combination of chocolate and orange in this dessert! I used macadamia nuts and bittersweet Belgian chocolate. The orange flavor really comes through. This is a rich bar--and rich is what we like. The bar is very fudgey in the middle, not cakelike, which is another plus. This really hit the spot for our sweet tooth tonight. Thanks so much!
Chocolate and orange, the best combination! I made this for my DS, so I only got to taste a small end from it, this got 5 stars from everyone, thanks BK!...Kitten:)
I'm an addict when it comes to a combination of chocolate & orange flavors, so it was very likely that this recipe actually reached out to me! Whatever the case, the resulting 'fantasy bars' were OUTSTANDING! I served them at one of the small group meetings I attend, foolishly expecting to have a couple to take back home with me! Well, I was glad I took 5-6 copies of the recipe, because EVERYONE was asking for the recipe! After I returned home, I made another batch JUST FOR ME [well, mostly just for me]! This is definitely a recipe I'll make again & again! Many thanks!
