Sea Salt Dark-Chocolate-Dipped Oranges

Fresh orange segments dipped in rich dark chocolate and sprinkled with sea salt. So simple, so healthy, so perfect … and the perfect bright, sweet cure for the winter doldrums.

Ingredients:

  • Two medium oranges (I used Cara Cara navels)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I used Ghiradelli 60% bittersweet chips)
  • Fleur de Sel or kosher salt

Directions:

  1. Peel the oranges and separate them into segments.
  2. Lay out a sheet of parchment or wax paper.
  3. Pour the chocolate chips in a small bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, then microwave in 15 second increments until just melted.
  4. Dip the orange segments in the chocolate, covering about half the orange on both sides. Set on the parchment or wax paper.
  5. Sprinkle immediately with Fleur de Sel or kosher salt.
  6. Let sit at room temperature until the chocolate has hardened – about an hour. Serve.

Dairy-free/vegan option:

Use dairy-free chocolate chips such as Enjoy Life brand.
