Chocolate-dipped oranges

Sweet and tangy, these little dippers are perfect for a snack or light dessert.

Prep time: 20 min. Servings: 1

Gluten Free Meat Free

Ingredients

  • 1 medium orange
  • 1 oz. dark chocolate

Directions

  1. Peel orange and pull apart into sections.
  2. Melt chocolate using a double boiler. To make your own double boiler, you’ll need a small to medium saucepan and a slightly smaller metal or glass bowl that will fit in the pan without touching the water (direct heat will burn the chocolate). Fill the pan with roughly two inches of water. If you don’t have a bowl that fits the pan, a smaller saucepan that fits in the larger pan without getting stuck will work. Place chocolate in the bowl and heat water until chocolate starts to melt. Slowly whisk chocolate until completely melted.
  3. Dip orange section into chocolate.
  4. Place chocolate-covered orange on parchment paper and chill in the freezer for 20 minutes.
