Orange and Chocolate Squares

"This square has great eye appeal, and looks great on your Christmas trays. A mellow orange flavor that is not overpowering, complimented with random mini chocolate chips. It is adapted from the Company's Coming Series."

  1. It sounds like a wonderful recipe, but I must have done something wrong. This did not out all that tasty. Help, Chef Dee!
  2. Definetly an attractive square as stated. Great directions and easy to make. I reduced the mini choc chips to one cup and it still seemed a little too much. I think 3/4 of a cup would be better for me. I think the icing really makes this square, I wouldn't want to eat them without it. I had planned on making these for Christmas trays and had bought everything but didn't get them done, so I made them today. I would definetly use them next year on a tray. I used red and yellow liquid food coloring since I didn't have any orange in liquid or paste. Worked great (duh, red and yellow make orange)! Thanks Chef Dee!
