Chocolate Dipped Clementines


I love orange chocolate.  In fact, if I had to choose my favorite kind of chocolate, I'd choose orange, followed closely by dark.  When I saw this recipe on How Sweet It Is, which she found from Food Network, I immediately couldn't wait to make it.  I love how insanely simple it was, and how it paired actual orange with chocolate.  And it satisfied my sweet tooth!  I pared down the recipe to make only 1 clementine worth, only so I didn't go overboard since I knew I'd be the only one eating these.  What a delightful treat-the perfect combination of sweet and salty...and Vitamin C!

6 Clementines, peeled and segmented
1 (3.5 ounce) Chocolate Bar (I also used Lindt 70% Dark)
Coarse Sea Salt

Lay the clementines on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Melt the chocolate in either the microwave or a double boiler (I used microwave-30 seconds at a time until the squares melted).  Dip half of the clementine in the chocolate and sprinkle with salt.  Continue with remaining slices.  Refrigerate for 10 minutes before serving.
