The one with chocolate and oranges

I wanted to make a little something over the holidays to take with me on my visit to my granny. I decided it needed to be sweet and easy to make. We both enjoy a nice piece of chocolate, so I made these chocolate covered oranges to accompany our Christmas coffee.



What you'll need:
  • 160 grams of orange peel
  • 200 grams of dark chocolate
  • optional: sea salt


What you'll need to do:

Melt the chocolate in a bain marie


Dip the oranges in the melted chocolate

Oops...

I added a bit of sea salt to half of the oranges and 
let them harden on a sheet of baking paper.

  3. Thats really cool! I'm not a fan of dark chocolate but I wouldn't trying that with milk chocolate. For NYE, we had strawberries covered with chocolate and those were really tasty.

  9. I do love this flavor combo! One of the candies I make is a dark chocolate and orange meltaway, with a very creamy interior. I can't keep them around--too dangerous!

  11. So sweet! I love chocolate too..I guess, who doesn't? Haha. I miss my nana, actually all of my grandparents are no longer here, and it's so nice that you can visit and make something special just for her. :)

    1. I am very grateful that she is still around! Not that I know any of them, but from what I've heard, there are people who do not like chocolate!

  16. These look delicious! Chocolate and orange is one of my favourite combinations and it's nice that it's a little bit different to chocolate covered strawberries. I'd be so pleased to recieve these! xx

  17. Never thought of this but in my country, most restaurants and caterers offer fresh fruits dipped in rich chocolate. Although I would prefer your recipe because I'm not a fan of soft or melted chocolates. I prefer the coated version.
