If you only know me from my facebook page you would guess all I ever do is think about jewelry making and painting, with an occasional foray out to the bonsai garden. But I also think a lot about chocolate!

I decided to make some chocolates thanks to a gift of 3 bars of 90%. Normally I would just eat them a bit at a time, but 90% is pretty strong and that would take a long time. Not that I'm in a hurry to eat 3 bars of chocolate but I wanted to make them taste better too. 

Some orange zest, sweetened condensed milk and butter took care of the problem. 

I have 2 old heart molds, so I filled one with the orange zest and added sea salt to the other. 

I spread the remaining chocolate out and added the zest, Craisins, raisins and toasted almonds. 

The whole batch came out pretty soft, more like a ganache or fudge. I suspect I used too much better. They were still quite edible and delicious!
