Chocolate Covered Orange Slices

Maybe you noticed your box seemed a little “heavier” today, we just wanted to show how much we LOVE our CSA members so we threw in some of our super sweet Navel oranges!  Here’s an easy sweet treat you can prepare for all of your Valentines using the oranges.  Enjoy!

(makes 15-20 slices)

2 large Navel Oranges
3.5 oz. of dark or milk chocolate
1/2 T. salted butter
(you can also just make it really easy and buy dipping chocolate at the store!!)

Melt the chocolate and butter together in a a fondue pot or in a Pyrex bowl over a pot of simmering hot water.  Once melted turn off the flame.  You can also use a double boiler if you have one of those.

Peel the oranges, leaving as much of the pith as possible.  Separate the sections and put them on a paper towel to absorb any excess juice.

Dip the orange slices into the chocolate (a wooden kabob stick works well) and let the extra chocolate drain off.  Place the dipped orange slice on a parchment or wax paper lined baking sheet.  Refrigerate  for a few hours to set.
