A Christmas treat for everyone to enjoy, but aimed at children and teenagers for something a little bit different. The contrast in the bitterness of the dark chocolate against the sweet, candied orange really works well. These are perfect to serve at a party, but we think that the best time to devour these are as a sweet treat whilst watching all the old and new festive Christmas movies. OrchardWorld Oranges can be purchased from Ocado.

Serves 12 | Makes 12 bites | Prep Time 15 mins | Cooking Time 1hr 15 mins
3 x OrchardWorld extra large seedless oranges – cut into slices/rounds. Leave the peel on.
1 cup good quality dark chocolate chunks
2 cups granulated sugar
Sea salt flakes
1 ½ cups of water
1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Next, slice the Oranges into slices / rounds removing any seeds.
2. In a wide, large pan combine granulated sugar and water. Bring the pan to a boil and continue to whisk until the sugar has dissolved. Next, add the orange slices to the pan and lay in an even layer. Bring to a simmer. Let the orange slices simmer for about 1 hour uncovered or until they become transparent.
3. Once the orange slices have become transparent, place the slices on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Let the orange slices dry for at least 24 hours uncovered. They will still feel a bit sticky but that’s fine.
4. Place the chocolate chunks in a microwave safe bowl and melt on high for 10 to 15 second intervals. 5. Once melted, dip half an orange slice into the chocolate and place back on the parchment paper to set. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired. Repeat process until all orange slices have been dipped. Wait for about 15 minutes until the chocolate hardens to serve.
