Orange treats

Let's start the day with something irresistibly delicious. My new orange candies are made accidentally. Yes, that's right. I planned to make a different dessert but because I made a mistake I finished with these treats.

But let's start step by step. I found a recipe in the net that attracted me a lot - Flourless dessert. Immediately I decide to try it and to prepare something different for my family.

I was in a hurry preparing this dessert. But usually I am working in that way that's why this didn't bother me. I spread the batter in the pan and after 10 min while I was cleaning the table, the dishes and the whole mess around me I found that I had forgotten to put one of the main ingredients in my batter - the ground almonds. Oh,noooo.....Some seconds I was thinking what to do. Finally I decided to wait while the dessert was baked and then I'll decide to throw it in the garbage or something else.

When the dessert was completely baked I decided that it wouldn't be eaten like this. Immediately I put it the blender where my almonds were still waiting for my final decision. I ground everything and with the mixture I made these small balls. I poured the melted chocolate and on the top I put a pistachio.

Let's stop talking..It's time for the recipe:

Flourless French Chocolate Orange Cake with Glaze
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup almonds (skin on) and grind finely 
  • 3/4 cup or 4 oz semi sweet chocolate (melt after measuring) 
  • 2/3 cup sugar

  • Grated rind of 1 large orange
