Chocolate Dipped Strawberries and Oranges

I always forget how delicious and satisfying chocolate dipped fruit is.  Perhaps because when I hear the word “fruit” linked with a dessert I am led to believe that it is healthy and not decadent.  However, these strawberries and oranges were amazing and satisfied my chocolate craving completely.  You can use any tip of fruit you like, but I especially love the orange and chocolate combo.  I then had a lot of fresh strawberries in the fridge, so I decided to use those as well.  Make this for Valentine’s Day coming up or any night of the week because it is so easy!

Place parchment paper on a sheet tray.  Dip the fruit in the chocolate and place on the parchment paper.  Sprinkle with salt.  Place in the fridge until the chocolate is set.  Then eat your way into chocolate fruity heaven.
