Stuffed oranges

Oranges are one of our favourite seasonal winter fruits . Their taste is nicely complemented by chocolate. You can use both ingredients to make a lovely dessert enriched with cream, dry fruit and cinnamon.

 

Stuffed oranges

Ingredients

  • 4 (organic) oranges
  • 2 handfuls of raisins
  • 2 tbsp rum
  • 2 handfuls of ground walnuts
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 300 ml Zelene Doline whipping cream
  • 70 g cooking chocolate
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder

Preparation

Wash the oranges in warm water and wipe dry. Cut off the top of each orange and carefully scoop out the pulp with a teaspoon. Cut the pulp into small pieces, taking care to remove any pips.

Put the ground walnuts, cinnamon, raisins, rum and orange pulp in a large bowl and mix well. Fill the hollowed oranges with the prepared mixture.

Finely grate the cooking chocolate and melt it over a hot water bath. To do this, heat half a litre of water in a small saucepan and cover it with a larger bowl containing the chocolate.

When the chocolate has melted, carefully stir in half the liquid cream to make liquid chocolate icing. Let the icing cool. Whip the rest of the cream with a an electric mixer. Using a whisk, stir half of the whipped cream into the chocolate icing and save the rest for decoration.

Decorate the oranges with the chocolate icing and whipped cream. Place the stuffed oranges on plates and, before serving, dust with some cocoa powder.
