White Chocolate-Dipped Citrus Segments

At a time of year when not much colourful foods are in season, citrus is my way to add a little vibrancy back into my kitchen. This is the simplest of treats to showcase them, just like I like them. It’s barely a recipe, but something that’s nice enough to serve guests for dessert.I love these as an afternoon snack too, You could definitely make these with dark chocolate, but I quite like the balance of blatantly sweet white chocolate with the mild acidity of the citrus. A combination of both blood orange and regular oranges was where my heart was at when I made these, but obviously either one on its own would be equally delicious.


To make these, melt some good-quality white chocolate using a double-boiler. Once the chocolate is completely smooth, transfer to a small bowl. Dip the citrus segments into the chocolate, letting excess drip back into the bowl. Arrange the slices on a parchment-paper lined cookie sheet. Put the segments in the fridge until the chocolate hardens, about 15 minutes.
