Recipe Type: Side
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 1-2 oranges, peeled, segments carefully separated
  • 3-4 ounces favorite dark chocolate, melted
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder*
  • ½ teaspoon coarse kosher salt*
Instructions
  1. Prepare a sheet pan or plate by lining with a sheet of parchment paper.
  2. Place peeled orange segments on a paper towel to soak up excess juiciness. This will help the melted chocolate adhere better to the slices.
  3. In a small dish, mix together chili powder & salt.
  4. Dip peeled orange segments in melted chocolate, then place on parchment paper.
  5. While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle with a pinch of chili-salt.
  6. *The measurements above are, of course, optional. You can put as much or as little chili and salt as you'd like. I found a pinch of the mixture to be just enough for a light dusting.
  7. Allow chocolate to set {for faster setting, place in freezer for 6-8 minutes}.
