The synergy of orange and chocolate is rich and uplifting and you'll suddenly find yourself with a massive boost of happiness. I think that's all we're really looking for, though this treat is also perfect after a hard workout, because Raw cacao is one of the top antioxidant foods in the world and super high in Magnesium.
Here’s the Recipe. Add or replace ingredients as you like:
