Author Notes: For me, nothing says Christmas like Terry's Chocolate Oranges. Every year since I was very young, my mom always put one in my stocking. I love the joy that comes with giving it a good smash on the table and eating one citrus-y slice after another. I thought it would be fun to make my own version this year, especially since my farmer and I have a breakfast orange-sharing ritual.Samantha Ardry

Makes: 1 large orange

  • 1 large navel orange
  • 12 ounces chocolate (milk, dark or combination)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • orange zest or orange extract
  1. Slice a large orange in half horizontally. Using a small, sharp paring knife, carve around the orange flesh and then scoop it out with a spoon. Save the orange flesh for another project, or eat as a snack. Set the two orange "cups" into a muffin tin or bowl to sit them upright if they won't on their own.
  2. Chop the chocolate or if using chips, pour them into a heatproof bowl along with the cream. Melt over a double boiler until completely smooth. Add orange zest or orange extract, off the heat if desired.
  3. ​Pour the chocolate equally between the two orange slices. Place the oranges in the fridge until set up and firm. Cut the chocolate orange into segments with a serrated knife and serve.
