We Should Cocoa - the December Challenge

After the mixed response we had to the Apple round-up, many of you asked for something "simple please" for Christmas. So, I've been mulling over the possibilities. What about Avocado? It's seasonal and comes from the same neck of the woods as cocoa. What could be more appropriate? Turkey maybe?

But no, I jest. I decided on my choice for this month's We Should Cocoa sometime ago. Seasonal, festive and if you're very lucky you'll find one in your stocking. It is a well established flavour pairing with chocolate and it's one of my favourite colours. The future's bright, the future's Orange!

  1. This makes me very happy! I was already thinking about making two different chocolate-orange combos soon, now I just have to decide which to go for...

    Excellent festive choice!

  2. Excellent choice!

    I don't understand what difference the challenge ingredient makes - surely the cook is the one who makes things simple or complicated?

  7. How did you know that orange is my favourite colour! I have been theming my garden in orange this year and have a gorgeous array of orange blooms as well as loads of orange tulips that have been dug in for next spring. So, I am very happy with this choice and LOVE choc & orange as a flavour combination :-) xx
