Orange You Glad you Like Chocolate? June 27, 2009

Dark-Chocolate Orange Starburst

Dark-Chocolate Orange Starburst

Kathryn says: I just started reading SuperFoods HealthStyle (http://www.amazon.com/SuperFoods-HealthStyle-Proven-Strategies-Lifelong/dp/0060755474), a good summer health read that promotes vigor, disease prevention and life extension.  It was recommended on another food blog, http://www.katheats.com/.  So far the book has discussed the benefits of exercise and it has identified some SuperFoods – foods with lots of health benefits.  The first two SuperFoods it discussed were oranges and dark chocolate, so I woke up craving both of them.  I took an orange out of the refrigerator, peeled it and split it open like a starburst.  Pretty!  Then, I sprinkled cinnamon on top.  I love cinnamon.  It’s great on nearly anything, and I’ve heard it has many health benefits.  Next, I microwaved two squares of Dove Promises Silky Smooth Dark Chocolate (http://74.125.47.132/search?q=cache:BSk8dMLtJigJ:www.dovechocolate.com/products_all_p1.html+dove+dark+chocolate+promises&cd=3&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us) for about a minute, stopping to stir it after 30 seconds.  I drizzled the melted chocolate on the oranges and ate it right away.  The cold oranges and warm chocolate made for an amazing burst of juicy flavor.
