How to Make Chocolate Covered Oranges

Chocolate Dipped OrangesChocolate Covered Oranges are Fun to Make and Delicious to Eat

Oranges are a tasty, juicy fruit packed with Vitamin C and I love chocolate dipped oranges or chocolate covered oranges.  The combination of citrus and chocolate makes a sweet and tangy treat which culminates in an awesome explosion of flavor!

It is very easy to make Chocolate Covered or Chocolate Dipped Oranges.  The hardest part is peeling the orange.


An Easy Way to Peel an Orange

An orange is much easier to peel with a little orange peeler.

Simply cut the orange peel into sections and peel away the orange peel.

Easy Directions for Chocolate Covered Orange Slices

Step 1: Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper ~ The cookie sheet will make it easier to move your Chocolate Covered Orange Slices.

Step 2: Peel Orange, divide into slices, gently dry slices

Step 3: Melt Your Chocolate ~ If you use Saco Dolci Frutta, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave in their package container.  Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 2 minutes on medium and stir the chocolate until it is completely melted.  Other chocolates will need to be melted in a double boiler or a microwavable dish.

Step 4: Dip the Orange slices in the chocolate

Step 5: Set on wax paper to cool

Step 6: When you have dipped all of your orange slices in chocolate, serve or eat.

Best if not refrigerated

Note: You could also dip the entire orange slice in the melted chocolate for completely chocolate covered oranges! Simply remove them from the chocolate with a toothpick to keep from smudging the chocolate and place them on the waxed paper.
