Oranges dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with sea salt is a simple yet full of flavor. Naturally gluten free and vegan-friendly.
Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
- 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
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.
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.
