chocolate orange confection recipe
someone reminded me about this recipe and even tho it will be in "raw delights" soon i thought i would post it here too. fast... easy... delicious!
chocolate orange confection 1 c sunflower seeds 1/2 c raisins 1/2 c dates (since i didn't have enough raisins in the pantry, & i think it worked better with the dates creaminess) 1/3- 1/2 c cacao powder (i made it very dark with chocolate yummm) 1 T maca powder (why for energy of course!) 1 T orange extract/flavor 1/2 t cinnamon powder 1/2 t vanilla extract/flavor or some seeds 1/3 c (6T) coconut oil melted pinch salt
food process as smooth as possible roll a scant tsp full into a small ball shaped candy and dip one side into sprinkles. plate, seal and refrigerate till firm. place on a lovely candy dish sprinkle sides up, and watch them disappear! i hope you enjoy them as much as i did.
sprinkles 1 T raw sugar crystals (or anything like that) 1 T orange peel (dried & ground into a powder w/coffee grinder)
stir & use to dip one side of candy into it's pretty fast to make & alot cheaper than the marbled chocolate orange whatever that takes 1-1/2 c of cacao butter $$$ holy schnikie!!! my inspiration (but not my budget ) i couldn't find his recipe this morning tho. oh, here it is! though i really want to taste that too. mmmm some have added some grand marnier to flavor this recipe instead of the orange extract, with great results. if you make this - please let me know how they turn out for you! comment away on any of these posts.... i'd love to hear from you.
now that i have shoveled for days, i have the sore muscles to prove it. the snow is at least a few times deeper than moe, my yorkie, is tall. it is a winter wonderland and the sun shines brilliantly. time to bundle up, grab my camera and go outside! have a great day all- xo snowdrop
