Chocolate Orange Crisps

I have never envisioned a big juicy orange as a sweet crisp. My dehydrator helped me to achieve that vision with these chocolate orange crisps. With a jar full of crisp slices of orange drenched in dark chocolate, who needs mars or snickers in their cupboards?!

Only 2 ingredients, how simple can cookery get! You’ll get through this like a breeze. Well saying that, the prep is like a breeze, the waiting is not so much. Though you can dehydrate these overnight so they’re ready for when you wake up, such a wonderfully fragrant smell to wake up to.

Serving size:                

Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 3 large oranges sliced
