Candied Orange

Dipping Chocolate

  • Temper your Valrhona Manjari 64% dark chocolate, and place the tempered chocolate in a deep bowl.
  • Once your oranges are dried, dip them each halfway into the chocolate. Allow any excess chocolate to dip off, and lightly scrape the edge on the side of the bowl.
  • Place the dipped orange slices on a piece of parchment paper to set. Once the chocolate is set, they are ready to enjoy!
