Chocolate Covered Orange
This chocolate covered orange is so quick and easy to make! The tartness and sweetness of the oranges complements the smooth and creamy chocolate. These dark chocolate covered oranges are a great snack and dessert!
First, wash and dry oranges. Slice into 8 equally sized pieces, either ¼ inch rounds or wedges. In a microwave safe bowl, add dark chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave in 30 second increments, stopping and stirring between each increment, until smooth and creamy. Line a pan with parchment paper. Dip each orange slice into melted chocolate either fully or halfway. Place on lined pan. Repeat for remaining orange pieces. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired. Place pan in fridge for 15 minutes or until chocolate coating has hardened. Finally, serve!
Slice oranges your preferred way. I cut mine into rounds so they are more visually appealing, but do not eat the peel.
They can also be peeled and sliced before dipped into chocolate.
Stop and stir chocolate mixture between each 30 second increment to prevent burning. It should only take two 30 second increments to be fully melted.
This makes a lot of melted chocolate so you will probably have a little leftover. I like to use up any fruit in my fridge and dip it in!
Dip as much or as little of the orange pieces in the chocolate as desired.
Store in fridge for up to 4 days.
I do not recommend freezing these.
