September 10, 2019

 

See our post about Bento and school lunches!

 

 

Ingredients

 

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

Tray

*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

 

 

 

Prep:

 

-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
