When Life Gives You Lemons

Here is a great snack to accompany your inauguration viewing party today. Not quite lemons exactly, but these dried orange slices dipped in dark chocolate, are a good reminder of the good things in life that continue to be.

The steps are pretty simple and so are the ingredients. I found the dried orange slices and chocolate while strolling the aisles of my local Trader Joe’s. Since the oranges are sweetened, I recommend using a chocolate that is at least 70% cocoa. I mixed about a tablespoon of milk to the chocolate and nuked it for 15 seconds. Once the sliced orange segments are dipped, make sure to stick them in the freezer for about 20 minutes and then store in an air tight container in the fridge.
