Who doesn’t like the chocolate orange combo? Well, not me as a kid, however, I decided to give it another try. If I may say it myself, it turned out pretty darn good too. They’re super chocolately with a fresh touch of orange. You can also substitute the orange zest to other citrus zests to give it a different twist.
These bites are raw and made with whole food ingredients. They’re super good for snacking or for when you feel like having something to satisfy your sweet tooth.
