Chocolate Dipped Clementines –

I have been DYING to make these for a few weeks now. I already eat clementines for dessert pretty regularly because they are (in my opinion) one of the most delicious fruits ever! So I thought dipping them in dark chocolate would really take them to the next level. I sprinkled pistachios on some, sea salt on some, and shredded coconut on some. I think they’d also be good with chia seeds, almonds, or ginger.

They taste so good its hard to believe that they’re actually healthy too, but I find that to be the case with a lot of Paleo food. Clementines are loaded with vitamin c, rich in calcium and potassium, and can help maintain healthy digestion because of their fiber content.

 

 

So, here’s the recipe:

7-8 clementines

4 oz. dark chocolate

Toppings of choice (sea salt, pistachios or other nuts, finely shredded coconut, ginger, chia seeds, etc.)

Directions: Peel and separate the clementines and set them aside. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Melt the chocolate using a double boiler, then dip each clementine segment into the dark chocolate and sprinkle with desired topping before the chocolate sets. Place on wax paper, and once all pieces are dipped, refrigerate for 10 minutes to harden. They will store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Makes about 50 pieces.
