[I made these cute little Coconut Butter and Chocolate Dipped Oranges for Earth Fare!]
Do you guys remember Magic Shell Chocolate?
As a kid, there was nothing more exciting. But when I discovered that I could use my beloved coconut oil to make HOMEMADE, HEALTHY chocolate that also had a Magic Shell effect, well that was pretty much life changing.
Coconut oil contains saturated fats, which are liquid and pourable at warmer temps, but harden as they cool. (That’s where the magic hardening effect comes in, but more about that in a sec)
- 6-8 Mandarin oranges
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- 2.5 tablespoons cacao powder (unsweetened)
- 1/2 tablespoon honey
- Coarse sea salt
- About 1/3 cup coconut butter
- Chopped pistachios
