Vegan Orange Olive Oil Chocolate Bark

5 from 1 vote

Chocolate has a naturally bitter taste that is usually masked by adding cream, milk and oodles of sugar.
But for those who love these bitter notes, nothing like a boost of orange peel to bring out the best in it. The addition of orange reduction, olive oil and sea salt brings it all together.
