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?

Chocolate Dipped Clementines I howsweeteats.com

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.

Chocolate Dipped Clementines

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.

Refrigerate for 10 minutes before serving.

You don’t even want to know how we went to town on these.

    I shall close my eyes and pretend you blogged about chocolate-dipped lychees instead… :D

    Orange flavor + chocolate is one of my favorite combos! I used to get a chocolate orange–orange-flavored chocolate in the shape of an orange–in my stocking for Christmas every year.

    These look yummy. I need some healthy treats( these are healthy, right?) for the upcoming weekend football playoffs…GO PATS! I figure fruit and dark chocolate will be less guilt laden and will go well with crispy kale chips, rosemary spiced cashews and your sweet potato crisps. Thanks for the timely post.

    I made these for high school chemistry class. We were uspposed to make something to show the difference between a mixture and…something else. I’m pretty sure I didn’t accomplish the goal of the assignment, but I am also pretty sure I and the rest of the class didn’t care. :)

    I love clementines and chocolate – I just recently discovered. On a whim, I cut slits in each wedge, and stuffed a dark chocolate chip inside, and then baked for a few minutes….probably a month or so ago – SO delicious!

    My husband will pretty much only eat clementines for fruit. He eats about 4-5 of them at a time 3 times a day. I think if I showed him this I’d go broke on clementines.
