Dark Chocolate Orange Blondies

"This is a nice change from the traditional blondie, especially for those who crave the combo of orange and chocolate," writes Kerri Pelz from Hendersonville, North Carolina. "An 8-inch loaf pan makes the perfect amount for two to snack on!"

    While searching for a quick dessert to make for supper, I came across this recipe and decided to give it a try. I'm sure glad I did! These bars came together quickly and were something a little out of the ordinary. My husband and I really enjoyed the orange/chocolate combination and I'll definitely make them again!
