    Do you discard the orange zest and juice?

    Do not add them to the mixture. Orange juice can be refrigerated for later use (for a healthy morning smootchie for e.g.)

    What size pan?

    I used raw cashews since I didn’t have almonds. Seems fine. Recipe is still a bit sticky- may not be the best to take on a hike. I’ll refrig them and see how they are.
