13 Chocolate and Orange Recipes 🍊

When we think of chocolate desserts with fruit, we often think of strawberries, raspberries, and bananas. Citrus? Not so much. But, why not?

Let’s take a look at Oranges. They’re the perfect summer fruit. A little sweet, a little sour, capable of waking up your senses one at a time.

 

The smell,

Summer ala Mode ☀️

Summer just wouldn’t be summer without ice cream. Which puts this frozen treat in popular demand.

So then, should you go out for ice cream? 

IMG_0827

Before you do, you should know the risks.

Risks?

IMG_0828

Uh, yeah.

IMG_0832

Racing the neighborhood kids to the ice cream truck? Not a good idea. Those kids are hungry. Aggressive. And probably faster than you.

 

IMG_0799

A walk in the park? Not so much. Combine heat and gravity and you have a tragic cone decapitation on your hands. Er, on the ground.

IMG_0792

Ye old ice cream parlor. Surely, that’s safe? Until your cone self combusts.

IMG_0795

Well then, how about a treat right outside the comfort of your own home? 

Weather forecast, cloudy with a chance of soccer balls.

IMG_0793

And don’t forget about all of the ice cream predators lurking out there. 

Man’s best friend? Not when ice cream is involved.

IMG_0568

Gentle giants, not when their tongue is bigger than your head.

IMG_0833

Let’s face it, ice cream can drive even the most motherly of creatures to a life of crime.

IMG_0574

So, does going out for ice cream still seem like a good idea?
