Panforte al Cioccolato

Days like today are exactly what Arizona weather is famous for. Clear, warm, and sunny. I could have been solar cooking all day. Instead I made another panforte which was done after only thirty minutes in the Sun Oven. This time I made the variation with chocolate. I know, we haven't even finished the apple cake from Monday and here I am solar baking more sweets. Well, like the first panforte, this one is for a special occasion. We haven't even tasted it yet. I'm hosting my first annual pi day celebration on March 14th and I wanted to get a head start on the preparations. Panforte will stay fresh for weeks if stored properly, but I'll have to hide it if I want it to stay intact that long.

When the panforte was done it seemed a shame to let the remaining hours of sunshine to go to waste. Dinner was already taken care of, I had some red lentil curry in the freezer. All I need was some rice to go with it. There was plenty of time and sun to solar cook that too.
