Re: Got ’em for you! More questions–and Recipe

Published by at 6:31 pm under chocolate

This is one of the best chocolate recipes I’ve come across.

Chocolate Orange Tart



1 1/2 cups toasted almonds
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup melted butter

Process almonds and brown sugar in a blender or food processor. Mix the almond/sugar blend with rest of ingrediants. Press mixture in bottom and 1 inch up sides of spring pan and back at 325 for 15-20 minutes until brown. Let cool.


3/4 cup whipping cream
6 ounces dark and/or mild chocolate
2 tablespoons orange liquor (optional)

Orange Marmalade

In a small sauce pan, heat whipping cream to simmer, constantly stirring. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate and liquor (can be any flavor actually)
Let cool, but still able to pour.

In meantime, coat crust with a thin layer of orange marmalade. Pour in chocolate and refrigerate for several hours until firm.

And there you go.

    Sharon: Susan is really fantastic, isn’t she?
    Yes, I do think of my subscribers as friends so I try to keep that in mind when I do the vlogs–try to make it more personal.
    And yes, give the recipe a try. I think you’ll like it.

    Great video! I love that you’re just talking to friends – that kind of a feeling. Found you through Tunisianswife and will keep watching your videos! I may have to try that recipe, too…

    Brad: Ah, the dirt of my life 🙂 As far as meat, I’ve just now gotten to where I can handle raw chicken without thinking anything of it. Hamburger on the other hand, not quite. So IF I ever cook the hamburgers, there is no forming of the patties, we just have crumble burgers. So Shawn makes the hamburgers–and they have to be well done also.

    Thanks for the recipe!! Anything with chocolate is good!!

    Karen: LOL at Yoda! I guess sounding like him is better than looking like him. That would be tramatic for everyone involved if I just started transforming into him after getting frustrated. Way to scary…

    Ruthe: No thank you very much! I do not like liver. I will not eat it in a house, I will not eat it with a mouse.
    Coffee is just comforting. Something about it that just makes me feel all good feelings.

    Joanie: After I saw your vlog yesterday, I went right over to his vlob and also checked out his website. It’s all very cool.
    Thanks for posting the questions. It definately makes vlogging easier, especially when I don’t have anything on the agenda to talk about.

    Beth: Yes no …
    Beth: Yes no nastiness in meat. There’s a very popular seafood place here call the Crab Pot where they bring the food in a huge bowl and just dump it on the table that’s covered with butcher paper. It has potatoes, crab legs, corn on the cob, lots of goodness. Well, after they brought it out, it had whole crawdads in it and that was it for me. The menu also said 1/2 lobster and the lobster was cut right down the middle. Needless to say, I didn’t eat very much that night.

    I guess a good ol’ plate of liver smothered in onions dont’ sound good then, huh?? LOLOL Don’t worry don’t sound good here either – Nasty stuff. Also, waking up to the aroma of coffee brewing is a wonderful feeling. 🙂

    If you like photography, please subscribe to ScottFaithfull (2 T’s and 2 L’s) he is amazing and so sweet! Bones and meat, you had me laughing out loud at this one, with your expressions, they are priceless! Shawn is just so blessed to have you in his life, you are one special person, Craig. Muuaaah!

    The recipe sounds good.
    No bones in the meat. Check. Even skinless thighs have that vein. SO nasty. I taught my brother how to find it and get rid of it. WHen he saw it, he freaked that for years he had been eating it. hahaha
    LOL @ your noises :))))

    Susan: It really is …
    Susan: It really is a fantastic recipe. We have grand marnier around, so I used that. You could also use raspberry preserves for the crust and raspberry liquor. Or, you could use carmel sauce instead of the marmalade with Baileys instead of the liquor. The options are limitless!

    Joyce: I have …
    Joyce: I have PLENTY to be shameful of, believe me. But I prefer to think of wonderful breakfast smells in the morning 🙂

    D: Oh, I don’t …
    D: Oh, I don’t think I could have said it. The video would have been removed and then no one would have heard about my absolute disgust for animal guts!

    I sat here laughing …
    I sat here laughing at the ‘inner parts of animals’. LOL oh, cinnamon buns in the morning(or any time) is a great smell. That recipe you posted looks incredibly easy! do you use dramboui, or what kind of orange liquor do you use? I love springform pans and have almonds from hubby’s family’s trees coming out of my armpits. oh, and I also don’t use the food processor often but like to. I have to try this recipe. thanks Craig.whenever I make a recipe I always think of the person that gave it to me.
