While I was scouring in the internet in search for a new steak recipe for Mr. How Sweet, I stumbled upon this treat of chocolate dipped clementines. Um… hello brilliance?
If I’m being honest, I must tell you that I got a little overzealous with the cake batter bark back in December, resulting in an outrageous amount of unused chocolate bars. I jumped at the chance to use one in another form other than just eating it straight from the foil. For breakfast.
Plus, is this not a fun snack?!
And it’s healthy too. Fruit = healthy. Chocolate = antioxidants.
This means I ate four times the recommended amount. I need my vitamins.
These are also so fresh tasting. Juicy orange with a touch of chocolate and sea salt. Really, I just feel that I hit the snack jackpot.
from the food network
6 clementines, peeled and segmented (I also pulled off most pith)
1 3.5-ounce chocolate bar (I used Lindt 70% cocoa)
coarse sea salt
Lay clementine slices on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Melt chocolate in either the microwave or a double boiler (I used a double boiler). Dip half the clementine in the chocolate then sprinkle with sea salt. Continue with remaining slices.
You don’t even want to know how we went to town on these.
