What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
  • 1 (.25 ounce) envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 orange
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and butter; mix well. Press mixture into bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish. Refrigerate until ready to fill.
  2. In a small, microwave-safe bowl, sprinkle gelatin over water; let stand 5 minutes. Heat in microwave on high power 20 seconds, then stir thoroughly until gelatin is completely dissolved.
  3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and yogurt until creamy. Add heavy cream and confectioners sugar and beat 2 to 3 minutes, or until thickened and fluffy. Beat in orange juice, zest from orange, and gelatin mixture until smooth. Pour orange mixture into crust.
  4. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours, or overnight.
  5. Before serving, peel and cut orange into segments. Dry well with paper towels. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
  6. In a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate chips 1 to 1-1/2 minutes, or until chocolate is melted, stirring occasionally. Dip orange segments halfway in chocolate and place on baking sheet. When chocolate has hardened, place orange segments on top of dessert.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Here's what happened - I had every intention of sharing this with all my friends, but instead I ended up eating this dessert by myself over the course of a few days. It was that good! It was luscious, but without being too heavy. The crust is phenomenal too. If you're just making it as an everyday dessert, I don't think you even need the chocolate covered oranges. It's good with or without them!
