Chocolate Orange Sandwich Biscuit

Chocolate Orange Sandwich Biscuit

These yummy chocolatey orangey biscuits will just pop on your tongue and leave you wondering if you have room for another one – or two – or three.

 

 

I was poking around in the fridge and what did I find hidden at the back but a jar of my homemade cashew nut butter and it was crying out to me ‘eat me’ use me’ ‘I’ll make something delicious!’ Ideas started flying around in my head. What did I fancy eating?

 

 

Something chocolatey, something with my favourite orange oil (is there really anything better than opening that biscuit tin and the scent of orange hitting you – it makes me feel so hungry happy every time!) Something that will melt in my mouth and give my taste buds a wonderful treat!

 

 

Well I’ve always had a thing for sandwich biscuits so it was a bit of a no-brainer really. It had to have a filling, the filling had to be chocolate and once tasted - I had to share it with you!
