  • 3 Large oranges , peeled & wedged
  • 10 ounces of white chocolate
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut oil
  • 1/4 cup black sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees and line a baking sheet with wax paper. Place sesame seeds in a shallow bowl and set aside.
  2. Transfer your white chocolate chips int0 a small glass baking dish (I used a 9 inch glass pie pan but any baking pan would do), drizzle the peanut oil, and use a spatula to coat the white chocolate in the oil. Place in the oven and let bake for 10 minutes. After ten minutes, remove from oven, stir, and place back in the oven. Continue to bake, stirring every ten minutes, until the mixture is smooth and has turned a light caramel color (think the color of light peanut butter). There will be times when you take your chocolate out and it will be chalky but continue to stir it and it should melt back up.
  3. Once your white color is caramelized and smooth, remove from heat and let cool just slightly. Dip your orange slices in the white chocolate, roll in the sesame seeds, and then transfer to your wax paper. Repeat with the rest of the orange wedges and then stick in the fridge to harden. Enjoy!
