I am really excited about this recipe! I’ve combined citrus tastes using orange flower water and lemon rind with dark chocolate and hazelnut. Classic yet rich but not too much! They taste divine and only needs the smearing of the ganache on the top. I wouldn’t pipe a large swirl on top as it would just be too rich!
