An all time favorite this orange chocolate delight is packing a nutritional punch. It is not often cakes contain omega 3, zinc, magnesium and calcium. As with all our desserts due to their fat content it is best to have a small slice and savour the taste.

- 2 oranges rind and juice
- 100g of cacao butter melted
- 2 ½ cups of raw cashew nuts
- ½ cup of maple syrup
- ¾ cup of cacao powder

Orange chocolate filling Method:
In a small saucepan on a low heat melt cacoa butter and allow to cool. In high-powered blender add all ingredients until smooth.
Blend all ingredients until it forms a fine crumb. Press evenly into a small tart tin or alternatively a slice tin.
Spread orange chocolate mixture evenly over base mixture. Use a spatula to achieve desired texture. Place in freezer until chocolate filling is firm to touch.
