Dark Chocolate Roasted Pistachio Bars

1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup cocoa powder
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp coarse salt
1 cup bittersweet, or semisweet, chocolate pieces
Zest from 1 Orange
Pistachios, coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

With an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
Add eggs, vanilla and orange zest. Mix until well blended. Add dry ingredients, and mix until just incorporated. Spread evenly into a 13×9 baking pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and place in heated oven for 3 minutes. With knife, move through the chocolate pieces and dough to create a marbled effect. Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle with pistachios.
Cool and cut evenly into bars

Makes 18-24 servings
