Chocolate Dipped Orange Slices

I have been stalking the computer last night and tonight for 5 minutes to blog. We are planning a trip to Mexico in May and like all decisions that must be made...Paul researches. When we needed to buy a car, a house, any electronic, tent, etc. Paul researches for days...sometimes weeks. He does a lot of checking things out at the store and coming home empty handed. Do you have a man in your life like this? Me? I am the opposite. I am the impulse buyer who lives with constant buyers remorse.

So...due to many more resorts that must be appraised, I chose these delights to share with you this evening. This is more of an idea than an actual recipe. I made five oranges the other afternoon that were instantly gobbled by hungry little people. They were a hit!

Chocolate Covered Orange Slices
Idea from: Paula Dean Holiday Baking Magazine

1 - 2 cups of chocolate-(I used a handful of dark chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips. You could use sweetened baking squares or cacao bars. Keep it dark chocolate and you can call these healthy!)

3-5 oranges

Peel and separate orange. Lay orange slices out on baking sheet covered with wax paper. Melt chocolate in microwave or double boiler. I always use the double boiler. Dip half of each orange section in chocolate and lay on wax paper. Set all orange slices in refrigerator for about 10 minutes til set. They will be gone instantly!


  1. Hello?! Why have I not thought of this?!?!? YUM!

  2. So funny! I did a google search for chocolate covered oranges and stopped by your blog...they look delicious and I will definitely be trying them...then I looked to the right hand side of your blog and there was a picture of my cousin Kristen! Random. Anyway, if you see Kristen...tell her "Hi" from her cousin Jen in London. :)
