Dark Chocolate Dipped Orange Wedges

Orange ya glad it’s summer? Finally! Today marks the second official day of the hottest, happiest and most relaxed season. I’ve been focusing eating a balanced diet – meaning sometimes it’s good to make yourself a cheat treat! – and have been creating some super easy recipes that curb my sweet tooth cravings without the calories.

These adorable orange wedges dipped in 85% baking cocoa and sprinkled with an assortment of shaved coconut, sea salt and almonds are so quick and easy to make. They’re the perfect on-the-go snack and so much more revitalizing than my typical go-to granola bars. These aren’t the pastries we have all been craving, but they are definitely a step in the right direction:)

{Prep Time: 5 Minutes    Cook Time: 10 Minutes    Total Time: 15 Minutes   Serves Approx. 8}


Let’s Get Started: 

4 oranges, peeled and separated
1 bar of 85% cocoa baking chocolate
A handful of sliced almonds
A handful of shredded coconut
A handful of sea salt

Let’s Get Cookin’:

Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Peel and separate oranges and place spaciously throughout the baking sheet. Break off 1/3 of chocolate bar and microwave for about 1 minute. Stir and reheat if necessary. Dip orange wedge tips into the chocolate and place back on baking sheet. Sprinkle with almonds, coconut and sea salt. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes until chocolate is hardened.

Let’s Get Creative:

Almonds, coconut and sea salt were just ingredients that I happened to have laying around that I think taste delicious with orange wedges! Of course, you can swap these for other ingredients such as raisins, cranberries and other small sweet and salty treats! Personally though, I’m a bit biased to the yummy aftertaste you get from the shredded coconut… mmm:)

Enjoy & Stay Classy! xx
