Ingredients

  • 4 oranges peeled and separated into wedges (any citrus fruit will work including clementines, mandarines and grapefruit)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips use Enjoy Life for vegan-friendly
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • sea salt for sprinkling optional

Instructions

  • Peel citrus fruit and lay out on a paper towel to remove any excess moisture.
  • Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl and heat until melted, stirring every 30-45 seconds. Depending on the power of your microwave, this should only take a couple minutes.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. One at a time, dip half of each orange wedge into the melted chocolate then lay flat on prepared baking sheet.
  • Repeat until you've dipped all of the fruit. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt.
  • Refrigerate pan to allow fruit to cool and chocolate to harden for 60 minutes before serving.

Notes

To make ahead of time, simply store chilled chocolate-dipped fruit in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days before serving.
As you can see, I used a variety of citrus fruits including oranges, grape fruit and mandarines.
