Chewy Chocolate-orange Bars
Grated orange zest
Raisin Puree is the basis for the dough of this rich-tasting, chewy bar. The combination of orange and chocolate is a classic favorite. We considered cutting the amount of chocolate in the recipe, thereby cut- ting the fat, but in the end we agreed that the extra richness is worth the extra grams of fat.
