  • Make the caramel sauce: Prepare an ice-water bath. Bring sugar and 2 tablespoons water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Cook, stirring until sugar is dissolved; continue cooking until mixture is dark amber in color, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat, and slowly and carefully add butter, juice, and a pinch of salt, stirring until smooth (you should have 3/4 cup sauce). Transfer pan to ice-water bath, and let cool for 15 minutes.

  • Divide orange slices among 4 shallow bowls, and top with caramel sauce and cocoa nibs.
