30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 6 – Vote For Chocolate Orange Snickers Cake

on November 6, 2012

Happy Election Day!  Did you all write me in for President??  There’s still time!!  😉

Today I am thankful that we live here in the USA and that we have so many freedoms, including the right to vote.

I am also extremely thankful that all of the political ads will end.  #enoughalready

Annnnnd, what could be better after waiting in line for hours to vote than a delicious slice of chocolatey goodness??  Not too many things are coming to mind, actually (although another Bermuda vacation is a close second, however):

{my birthday 2007}

I digress.  Back to the chocolate.

Anyone else out there with too much Halloween candy??  You could really make any variation on this recipe by using Butterfinger or Reese’s Cups, etc. (and with or without the orange – I just love chocolate and orange flavors combined!).

The main things you need to know are that it has fresh orange zest (that’s the healthy part!!):

and chopped up Snickers bars (well, nuts can be healthy too, right?)…

that have been melted with a little heavy cream (um… dairy?).  Ok, that’s a stretch, I know:

Yeah, it is not a dessert for the faint of heart.   It is just oooey chocolatey goodness, y’all.  Wish I could say it were healthy, but this one is not.  All things in moderation.  Just eat little bites. 🙂

Got a little carried away with the Snickers drizzle since Littlest really wanted to help!   So.  Yummy.

The recipe is here – enjoy!!  And I hope you all had a fantastic day!!

xoxo,

Claire
