Hazelnut Cherry Bark features crunchy toasted hazelnuts, chewy dried cherries, and tangy candied ginger, all bound together with rich dark chocolate. I recommend using tart dried cherries, but if you can’t find the tart variety, dried cranberries are a good substitute.

Chocolate Orange Mousse Squares are rich, creamy squares of soft chocolate studded with buttery shortbread, crunchy hazelnuts and tangy candied orange peel. I call them "mousse squares" because they have the rich flavor and light texture of chocolate mousse.

Hazelnut-Orange Meringues feature a subtle orange flavor and nutty toasted hazelnuts in a light, crispy candy recipe that’s perfect for a snack or a light dessert. Dipping the meringues in chocolate is an optional step, but I highly recommend it--the chocolate really complements the orange and hazelnut flavors.
