Yes, we know you can buy a chocolate confection in the shape of an orange, but we think dipping fresh juicy oranges into warm chocolate is even better. In fact much better!
So you can prepare your very own home made Chocolate Dipped Orange Segments here is today’s tasty recipe.
Ingredients and needed consumables:
2 large Sunburst naval oranges, peeled and segmented
4 cups dark chocolate chips
2 teaspoon of vegetable oil
Redmond Utah sea salt (you can substitute other brands of sea salt)
Parchment paper sheets
In a double boiler melt the chocolate chips.
Alternate Microwave method: cook on medium setting for 30 second intervals, repeat as needed, stirring in between, until smooth and melted.
Then, stir in the vegetable oil and continue mixing until smooth and well combined.
Dip the (with rotation) orange segments, to the halfway point, into the melted chocolate mixture. Then place the dipped orange segments on parchment paper. Sprinkle (to taste) with the sea salt before cooling.
Let the chocolate dipped oranges set in your refrigerator for 1 hour or until the chocolate coating is firmly set.
Prep and Process Time:
1½ hours, this includes prep, cooling and chocolate set time.
