Ingredients

Instructions

  • Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips in the microwave for 50 seconds, stopping once to stir. After 50 seconds, the chocolate chips still might look like they haven't melted yet, but once you start stirring, they will smooth out.
  • Dip orange slices into the melted chocolate, and lay them on a parchment paper-covered plate.
  • Refrigerate the chocolate covered orange slices for fifteen minutes until the chocolate sets. Then serve!

Notes

The chocolate goes on easiest when it's warm. So be sure to work quickly after it has come out of the microwave.
The chocolate holds to the fruit best when the fruit is dry. So blot it with a clean towel if needed.
