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.

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 don’t love clementines but I might change my tune if they were coated in delicious chocolate!

    Okay, so I noticed that you bought Trader Joe’s Vanilla Extract. How do you think that compares to Nielsen-Massey’s Vanilla Extract? I don’t live near a TJ’s or Sonoma-Williams, and was wondering if maybe you have tried both?

    Okay. So I never used to be a fan of fruit mixed with chocolate! My grandmother, that raised me, used to buy the nasty chocolate orange or raspberry sticks. I remember being completely disappointed there was no caramel to be found!

    Well, I have matured. Or have become more desperate! But I love chocolate on pretty much everything! ha ha And especially if I can call it healthy! This would count for one of my diet snacks. :) Yum!

    BTW I don’t think the chocolate sticks are nasty anymore. I just don’t go out of my way to buy them but they sure give me sweet memories of my grandmother!

    Can I make these in advance? How do I keep peeled clementines from drying out?

    • Jessica — August 2nd, 2013 @ 3:42 pm

      i would make them maybe one day in advance and keep them in the fridge on a plate with a cover of plastic wrap.
