September 10, 2019


See our post about Bento and school lunches!





6 oz semi sweet chocolate ( I used 3, 2oz chocolate bars)


1 1/4 tsp coconut oil

2-3 mandarins

1 cup plain or salted pretzels

A medium pot or sauce pan

A heat proof bowl

Wax paper


*Make sure heat proof bowl fits snuggly onto your pot or sauce pan. Steam should be trapped under bowl. 



Prepare chocolate


Heat chocolate in a double boiler or microwave






-Peel your oranges and separate into single slices, set aside


-Line a tray with parchment paper


-To melt chocolate in a double boiler, fill your medium pot or sauce pan with water to about a quarter way up


-Bring your water to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Your water should remain at a low simmer.


-Place your chocolate into the heat proof bowl and then fit your bowl on top of your pot.


-Pour in your coconut oil and stir.


-Watch your chocolate and stir until chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Turn off heat.


-With an oven mitt take your bowl out of your pot and transfer to counter.


-Dip your oranges in the melted chocolate and place onto tray 

   *(optional topping; you can sprinkle with shredded coconut or sea salt)


-Continue with pretzels


-Place tray in freezer for 20 minutes, then take out and transfer to a container or plate covered with saran wrap. Place your oranges and pretzels into the fridge to store until ready to use. Oranges will keep for 2-3 days in fridge
