Chocolate Dipped Clementines.

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.

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.

Refrigerate for 10 minutes before serving.
