Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup each yellow, green, orange and red candy coating disks
  • 16 to 20 small lemon, rose or mint leaves
  • 2-1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 4 Popsicle sticks
  • 4 large navel oranges, peeled
  • 1 package (11 ounces) Kraft caramel bits

  • 4. Melt caramels and water in a microwave; stir until smooth. Dip oranges into caramel; turn to coat. Place on prepared pan and let stand until set.
  • 5. Remelt chocolate if necessary. Dip oranges into chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Attach leaves as desired. Return to pan; refrigerate until serving. Cut with a serrated knife. Yield: 4 servings.
