chocolate orange brownies), and I enjoyed these madeleines. They were moist and I liked their smooth chocolate-orange flavor. However, I still prefer the regular lemon madeleines (the two types are pictured together above). Perhaps the chocolate madeleines just weren't quite chocolatey enough. Malgieri suggests that the madeleines are tasty when dipped in tempered chocolate, and I'm thinking that a coating of chocolate would make these not just good, but great.
