Chocolate and Orange may seem an unlikely pair, but these two flavors have been used to create treats for generations. Candied chocolate oranges are a holiday tradition, and pairing melted chocolate and orange slices has become a sophisticated dessert option. This Chocolate Covered Sumo Citrus Recipe takes the Chocolate Coated Fresh Orange Slice to new heights.
This simple recipe only has three ingredients, but the results are far from plain. Each bite combines sweet, juicy Sumo Citrus with rich chocolate and the slight saltiness of flaked sea salt. Gather what you need and prepare this easy yet decadent dessert that is both fun to eat and rewarding to share
1/2 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips
2 to 3 Sumo Citrus Mandarins, Peeled and segmented Flaky Sea Salt
Melt Chocolate Chips in a double boiler over simmering water. Do not allow the water to boil. Stir until creamy. Carefully dip ½ to ¾ of each slice of Sumo Citrus into the melted chocolate, and place on waxed paper. Top each as you go with flakey sea salt while chocolate is still hot.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (until the chocolate fully hardens) then enjoy.
Keep refrigerated in a single layer within a sealed plastic container for a few days.
When making, you can also coat slices of Granny Smith Apples for variety.
If Sumo Citrus is unavailable, simply use your favorite sweet orange.
