Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and salt; mix
well. Add melted chocolate, orange peel, oil, orange juice, vanilla and eggs; blend
well. (Dough will be stiff). Add 6 ounce chopped baking bar; gently knead into dough.
Divide dough into 4 equal parts; shape each part into roll 14 inches long.
Place 2 rolls on each cookie sheet; flatten each roll to 2 1/2-inch width. Bake
at 350 degrees F for 18 to 20 minutes or until firm to the touch.
Remove cookie sheets from the oven. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F.
Cool rolls on cookie sheets for 10 minutes. Cut rolls diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick
slices. Place slices, cut side up, on same cookie sheets.
Bake at 300 degrees F for 7 to 9 minutes or until top surface is dry.
Turn cookies over; bake an additional
7 to 9 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets.
Cool for 15 minutes or until completely cooled.
In small saucepan, melt 4 ounces chocolate and shortening over low heat, stirring
until smooth. Drizzle over cookies.
