Something different

by L. Layne , Fremont, IN on Apr. 2009

The combination of orange & chocolate in this recipe reminded me of the Jaffa Cakes I'd tasted in England, so I emailed the recipe to my daughter, who lives in England, thinking she might like to serve it when entertaining her friends at tea. We prepared the recipe together during my visit last week. It met with mixed reviews; she and I love it, but my husband wasn't too enthusiastic about the taste of the marmalade. She & I decided it could be just as tasty for finicky eaters like her father by substituting raspberry or apricot preserves for the marmalade. She & I definitely will be making this recipe again not only in it's original version, but also with the variations we suggest, as it is something a bit different from the ordinary.

Outstanding

Two chocolates and orange are an unbeatable combination. Finally...a great way to use orange marmelade!

These are really good. My husband said they were good, and he is not a chocolate fan. I will definitely make these again. Thanks.

This was okay, but even my husband who loves 'sweet' said that this was way to sweet. We gave most of it away.
