Equipment

  • double boiler or microwave

Ingredients

  • 2 medium-sized oranges
  • 9 tbsp dark chocolate chips vegan & gluten-free
  • 2 tsp coconut oil melted or solid
  • 2-3 tbsp goji berries
  • 1 pinch pink Himalayan salt or sea salt

Instructions

  • Wash the oranges, slice them at ¼ inch thick rounds and freeze them for an hour. It’s a whole lot easier to dip fruit in melted chocolate when the fruit itself is frozen.  It also makes it easier to dry/set.
  • After the oranges are frozen, prepare the double boiler on medium to low heat and melt the chocolate.  Once the chocolate is melted, turn the heat down to low and add the coconut oil one teaspoon at a time, while stirring.  You will notice that the chocolate mixture will suddenly get thinner and easier to stir because of the coconut oil.
  • Keep the heat on low while you dip each round into the chocolate making sure that both sides get covered half-way.
  • Lay orange slices on a baking sheet with parchment paper.  While the chocolate is still wet, add a sprinkle of pink salt and 3-4 Goji Berries onto one side.
  • Once all orange slices are coated in chocolate, Goji Berries & pink salt, place the baking tray into the freezer and let the oranges set.
  • Store in freezer in a plastic bag, or glass container till ready to serve.
