Zesty Chocolate Orange Bites

Ingredients

  • 4 T. freshly grated orange zest
  • 1/2 c. baking truvia (make sure it is BAKING truvia) or you may use 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves (I put cloves in my magic bullet because I did not have the ground powder on hand)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 sheets thawed Phyllo dough – found in the freezer section (I used organic)
  • Cooking spray or coconut spray
  • 1/4 c. chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate chips)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Take your 4 sheets of phyllo dough and cut them in half long ways into 8 rectangular shaped pieces.
  • Take first piece and lightly spray with cooking spray and place second piece on top.
  • In a bowl mix together orange zest, sugar and spices.
  • Sprinkle 1/4 of the orange & spice mixture over the entire piece of phyllo.
  • Start rolling phyllo up long ways so that you have a longer log shaped tube.
  • Cut log gently into 8 bite size pieces.
  • You should be able to form 4 logs (32 bites all together) and divide mixture among them evenly.
  • Place pieces on sprayed cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Let cool completely.
  • In a separate microwave safe bowl, heat 1/4 c. chocolate chips for 90 seconds or until melted. This will be HOT!
  • Stir chocolate until smooth.
  • Spoon chocolate into a Ziplock baggie and cut a tiny piece off the corner so you can squeeze the chocolate on to each bite.
  • Put in fridge and let chocolate harden.
