Orange Blossoms

A favorite of my father-in-law's and my third ball for the cookie plate. If you like chocolate and orange together you'll love these!!! I was told that the 2-3 days of 'ripening' is quite important so plan accordingly when you prepare. These would be a great make-ahead dessert for any occasion!
