Dark Chocolate Oranges With Sea Salt

Confession time...I LOVE dark chocolate!!! Quite frankly it's right up there with cheese LOL!  Unfortunately, it doesn't seem that many diets include either of these.  EXCEPT the 21 Day Fix!!  You are allowed both in moderation with the 21 Day Fix meal plan :)  These little delights have saved me a time or three from driving to the gas station in search of some Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (Bummer I know...those are not allowed on the 21 Day Fix!).

My first run with these was at a bachelorette wine tasting adventure...and they were a total HIT with all of the ladies!!  Who doesn't love a little dark chocolate with some vino??  These are super easy to make with only 3 ingredients they are also pretty much fool proof :)  You'll also need a zip lock bag...I prefer a freezer bag because they are a bit stronger than your regular storage bag...as well as a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Chill Time: 30 Minutes
3- Clementine Oranges (1 purple container)
1- 1" Dark Chocolate Square (1 yellow container)
Sea Salt

Go ahead and peel your oranges and pull off any extra hanging pith (the white stuff in between the orange slices).  Arrange your orange slices on your parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Place your chocolate in a small microwave safe container and microwave it in 10 second intervals until it is completely melted.  Scoop all of the melted chocolate into your zip lock bag and use your fingers to push the chocolate to one corner of the bag.  Using scissors snip off the tip of the bag where you have the melted chocolate collected.  Make sure it's a very small cut so you can drizzle the chocolate!!  Drizzle the melted chocolate over your oranges and then sprinkle a small amount of sea salt on top.  Toss the whole sheet of oranges into your fridge for around 30 minutes so the chocolate can harden.  Try to wait patiently for them to finish setting and then ENJOY!! :)
