    PaulaG's Note:

    The combination of chocolate and orange flavors is addicting. This recipe is easy enough for weeknight meals; however, has a beautiful presentation for that special dinner party. This recipe is from the February 1996 edition of Delicious Living.

      Really interesting flavor; I liked it alot. I think I'd double the sauce next time. It's a beautiful brown, velvety sauce. I'm wondering about adding a pinch of cayenne. REVISED to go to five stars: I just had the leftovers. The flavors meld beautifully, and the whole thing froze well. I think I'd make twice as much sauce next time. Very delicious.
