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?
Chocolate dipped clementines just SPOKE to me. It sounded fabulous. Fresh and delicious but sweet and rich. And topped with salt! I can’t handle the love.
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.
Ooooomph. Help me.
Plus, is this not a fun snack?! I think it’s the best thing if you’re looking for a cool after school snack or even something mid-morning if you have a serious chocolate craving. For me, that’s… always.
And it’s healthy too. Fruit = healthy. Chocolate = antioxidants. SEE. I justify all the things.
This means I ate four times the recommended amount. I need my vitamins.
But really! This is a little dessert or snack that you don’t feel terrible about – even after eating an entire bowl of it. It’s also a super fun holiday appetizer or treat, because clementines are in season. And you’ll feel better about this than truffles. Trust me.
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
- 6 clementines, peeled and segmented (I also pulled off most pith)
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- flaked sea salt
- Place the clementine slices on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Melt chocolate in either the microwave or a double boiler – if microwaving, do it on 50% power for 30 seconds, stirring after, until melted. Stir in the coconut oil until melted. Dip half the clementine in the chocolate then sprinkle with flaked salt. Continue with remaining slices.
- Refrigerate for 10 minutes before serving. They stay great in the fridge!

Oh these are healthy, and even necessary to prevent getting sick in the winter!
Pretty, full of vitamin C and chocolate, and (i can only imagine!!) totally delicious…what more can you really ask for? ;) Lovin’ the inspiration, Jessica…
Awesome… love of the addition of sea salt!!!
Oh these are genius! We all need our Vitamin C, dipped in chocolate makes them even better!
Yep, this look as good as the title suggests.
Sometimes, it is the simplest things! Yum!
I JUST bought clementines at Trader Joe’s. Making these!
Oh Jessica, why you gotsta be so cruel? Orange/clementime/mandarin citrus makes my stomach turn. It’s torture to look at such pretty, pretty pictures, knowing that the reality would make me sick!
I shall close my eyes and pretend you blogged about chocolate-dipped lychees instead… :D
I am all for chocolate covered fruit! These look incredible! I’m never buying Emergen-C again – only eating these!
Super healthy!!!!!! =D
Can’t wait to make these!
Great idea, they look delicious.
I love clementines…these look like such a nice treat!
bahahahaha! That is a pretty neat idea. I can’t even imagine how they taste… my guess is awesome? haha =)
I’ve made these before and totally forgot about them!!! I always go for the strawberries. Looks great!
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.
They look so pretty!
So healthy and so easy! I can taste them right now. :-)
Those are so beautiful! I kind of wish I had clementines in the house- I’d make them for the hostess of the party we’re going to tonight. The sea salt on top is such a classy touch
Why haven’t I thought of this??
Ohh – they’re gorgeous!
I love the sprinkle of sea salt!!! crunchy, sweet, juicy wow
Er, how did you find these while looking for steak recipes? :-) Just kidding! They look awesome. I am swimming in clementines… adding chocolate would be a step up for sure.
I love the photography in this post!!
Vitamin C = Vitamin Chocolate. Perfect.

I think the sea salt is what makes it. No wait, the chocolate.
Excellent idea! We all need extra Vitamin C this time of year!
Um..you just made my two favorite snacks even better! Why did I never think to combine them?!
So simple! I bet they are delicious! MUST MAKE SOON.
I love chocolate dipped strawberries, so I am sure I would love these! Why didn’t I think of that? :-)
What a delicious little treat and they look so pretty.

Holy yum! Chocolate dipped fruit is one of your recipes I can maybe actually enjoy without having to unbutton my pants!! haha
This looks EASY and DELICIOUS! I have to try it soon…good thing I happen to have clementines in my fridge now :) Beautiful pictures BTW
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. :)
Good this I have a whole bag of clementines waiting to be devoured. You get an award :D http://blissfulnotes.wordpress.com/2011/01/15/one-big-tater/
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!
That sounds incredible!

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.
Brilliant! I love orange chocolate and I love that touch of sea salt, too. We still have half a box of Clementines left; I’m so going to try this!
These choc dipped clementines are so fun! I bet very tasty too :) xo
haha what a fabulous idea!
