Chocolate Clementines

Conversation with my daughter:

Cam: Mama, I want to make a surprise for Daddy.
Me:  Ok, what should we make?
Cam: Something with chocolate because Daddy REALLY likes chocolate.

Since I knew anything we made, she (and I) would end up consuming as well, I wanted to keep this treat on the healthier side.  A few years ago, I read in Runner’s World that chef Richard Blais (from Top Chef) dips pieces of clementine in dark chocolate for a mini indulgence.  I thought this sounded easy and fantastic, so..

This is incredibly easy to do.

All we used were dark cocoa candy melts and clementines.

1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper.
2.  Peel clementines and divide into slices.  Make sure to remove any stringy pith from the slices.
3.  Follow directions on candy melts to melt the chocolate.  I used the microwave.
4.  Dip half of clementine slice in melted chocolate.  Let the excess chocolate drip off into the bowl.  Lay the dipped clementine slice on the baking sheet.
5.  Place cookie sheet in the refrigerator to harden for half an hour.
We like our clementines cold, so to store them I simply took them off the cookie sheet and placed them in a Tupperware container in the refrigerator.   They lasted about 2 days…. because we ate them.
Do you have any easy, healthy snacks to recommend?  Please tell us in the comments below!
