Author Notes: Versatile, easy, recipe a friend gave me. It can be changed up with different additions... she made orange with dried cranberry, which I tried...delicious! I’ve made dark chocolate chips with orange rind, which are amazing. Next I’m doing toasted almonds with orange rind. Savory would be interesting. Have fun creating your signature addition.BerryBaby
