Stage 2 - 3 min.
Chocolate orangettes for Erika
Pour 100 g dark chocolate and 1 tablespoon oil into a glass, place the glass in a small saucepan and fill with water.

The spoonful of oil is there to give the chocolate a nice shine after coating.

...stirring occasionally.

Stage 5

Stage 6

Remove the pan from the heat and place it on your work surface.

Dip a bark halfway into the chocolate.

Tap to remove excess chocolate.

Stage 7

Then place the bark on a sheet of baking paper on a baking sheet.

Stage 8 - 30 min.

Do this for all the barks, then put the plate in the fridge to let the chocolate harden.

Stage 9
Chocolate orangettes for Erika
Remove the orangettes from the leaf, then put them in a jar to enjoy.
For a version with almonds or hazelnuts, dip each bark, with the chocolate still warm, into a plate full of almond powder ( roasted if necessary).

You'll see a lot of recipes where the chocolate is melted in a bowl, but this is a bad idea. It's much better to use a narrower, taller glass, which is much more practical.
Several days in the fridge, in a closed container.
Home made.
