Un-Recipe Files - Salted Dark Chocolate Clementines

Clementines are one of my favorite winter snacks.  I love how easy they are to peel.  I think the younger generation is going to be spoiled by clementines, they won’t know what it is like to peel a stubborn orange.  If you have seen the Cuties commercials you know that they even market to children, “Cuties are for kids”.

I first saw chocolate dipped clementines on the Food Network website and tried them right away since I had everything on hand.  The combination of juicy citrus, dark chocolate, and sea salt is delicious.  I used Maldon sea salt since it is so pretty and I like pretty things.  I totally hoard my Maldon salt and only use it when it adds to the presentation, like in these flatbreads with sea salt,honey, and thyme.

I melted 1.5 ounces of dark chocolate in the microwave for about 1 minute, then dipped a few segments in the chocolate, laid them on waxed paper, and sprinkled with the salt.  The chocolate dries pretty quickly, so you need to sprinkle the salt on pretty often.  I was able to dip two clementines with that amount of chocolate.  Such a fun sweet snack to have on hand!
