Hi Zoe, you can add essence but watch out for cheaper ones that are basically pure sugar. That said, you will only be using a very small amount. You could also use a chocolate that already has orange flavouring (I’ve used Terry’s Dark choc oranges a few times for GD bakes/recipes with it not making an impact on my levels) and don’t forget, you can also get a great orangey zingy hit from orange zest grated in and over the top, which will also not impact blood sugar levels. Have fun playing around with it! Jo xx
