Chocolate Oranges

I'm having a few friends over this evening for a craft night. We will be having tea coffee and appetizers. One thing I have found is that coffee and tea both are better with a little sweet on the side. A perfect sweet for both espresso and tea is chocolate covered orange slices. They are easy to make similar to chocolate strawberries.
Peel an orange or two and separate into segments. You want segments that are unbroken and the rind and pith removed.
Melt the chocolate in the double boiler. Grab one segment at a time and dip into the chocolate and then place on a piece of wax paper to solidify.
Once the chocolate has solidified store in an air tight container for up to 3 days.
Or better yet serve with a cup of espresso or earl gray tea.
