Chocolate Orange Hazelnut Bark

Posted by Solitary Dancer on February 8, 2007

Chocolate Orange Hazelnut Bark

This came out of the Weekend Food section about a year ago. I really think that this can be acceptable in small amounts. I ran the numbers through Fit Day and used the numbers from the Lindt 85% chocolate bars.


1 navel orange
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate or semisweet chocolate, chopped
2/3 cup hazelnuts, skins removed and hazelnuts coarsely chopped
1/8 teaspoon coarse salt


1. Using aluminum foil line a 9 by 13 inch baking sheet and refrigerate it.

2. Remove zest from half the orange with a vegetable peeler.

3. Cut it into thin strips, about an inch long each.

4. Put chocolate in a heat proof bowl set over a pan of water that is simmering or use a double boiler.

5. Mix well until melted and smooth in texture.

6. Fold in half the zest and nuts.

7. Immediately, pour this mixture onto the refrigerated sheet.

8. Using a rubber spatula, spread mixture into an 8 by 10 inch rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.

9. Sprinkle with remaining zest, nuts and salt.

10. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.

11. Break into pieces and serve.

12. Transfer to an airtight container and store refrigerated for 3 days.

My nutritional calculations

I did not include the orange as the zest was only used.
2/3 cup hazelnuts: Total CHO: 12.68g Fiber: 7.36g Protein: 11.35 G
8 oz of Lindt 85% chocolate: Total CHO: 48g Fiber: 18g

TOTAL: CHO: 60.68 Fiber: 25.36 NET CHO: 35.32

Based on 8 servings–4.415 NET CHO per serving
