Chocolate Dipped Orange Slices

So simple right?  Little orange slices dipped in chocolate. When I saw the idea on Pinterest I knew it was something I could actually do instead of leaving it buried in the depths of Pinterest boards, never to be heard of again.

Snickerdoodle Blondies with Cinnamon Ice Cream

I follow Go Dairy Free on Twitter and awhile back they tweeted the following recipe: Snickerdoodle Blondies I thought it sounded amazing and made a half batch on Sunday.  Other than halving the recipe I made it as written except I used Bob's Red Mill Egg Replacer instead of an egg.
