Chocolate Dipped Orange Slices


If you are a fan of overpriced jelly sticks covered in chocolate, try out this simple two ingredient recipe. I have tried a few different brands of candy orange slices and my favorite is the Great Value brand from Walmart. I think it has the best orange flavor, more so than Brach's brand.

For the chocolate, I used chocolate almond bark which I find melts much smoother, faster and easier than regular chocolate chips. I hadn't used 'almond bark' chocolate until the past year but I love it for dipping cookies or candies. Chocolate chips can be a bit temperamental and thicken up but the chocolate bark stays nice and smooth. Many thanks to Blissful Roots for the inspiration for this recipe.

Chocolate Dipped Orange Slices
Makes about 40 slices

Ingredients:

2 small bags candy orange slices (about 40 pieces)
3-4 ounces chocolate almond bark (I used 3 [1 oz.] squares)

Directions:

1. Break the almond bark into squares and place in a microwaveable dish. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after every 30 seconds. Stir well to get the bark smooth. Dip the orange slices in the chocolate and lay on a piece of parchment paper to set up. Once set, keep in a tin or tupperware container.

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.


Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!
