Another beauty this week from my new chocolate ebook! I made these chocolate orange tarts for my first ever day at Northey Street, way back in 2010. The recipe has been modified slightly now – I think I was still making avocado chocolate back then – but, chocolate + orange = can’t ever go wrong.By the way, Northey Streeters: prepare to be fed for real, SOON! xx
