“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” Charles M. Schulz
Frankly, I agree.
I’m fairly certain most of us do. For those that don’t, well I don’t know, I don’t understand. I guess I’ll eat yours for you.
I tend to like dark chocolate, but I’m also partial to things covered in chocolate… almonds, espresso beans, strawberries, well most fruits…
When I was in college, one of my professors brought in clementines to one of our classes and despite the fact that sticky fingers don’t work that well with computers while doing graphic design work, I was all about it. I’m sure I had them before but for some reason, maybe because it was 6:30 at night and I was still in class, those clementines were just little balls of citrusy happiness.
Ever since, I’ve enjoyed them. I buy bags of the cuties and eat ‘em as snacks pretty frequently. This happened recently and I was going to grab a few when my mind remembered the melted chocolate I had in the fridge. Quickly, I put two and two together and decided not to deny myself any longer of citrusy, juicy, tangy chocolate-dipped clementines.
They’re all kinds of good.
I used one of those meltable chocolate packs you can buy which frankly is easier when you’re just hankering for some chocolate dipped something or other. But should you choose to make your own chocolate dipping sauce, it’s pretty simple.
- 1 bag of clementines
- 1 container of chocolate for melting or 2 cups chocolate
- wax paper
- Peel and break apart clementines into individual pieces.
- Melt chocolate per package directions or in a bowl, microwave chocolate pieces for 30 seconds until melted through, taking care to stir between heatings.
- Once melted, dip clementines in about half way, then lay on wax paper. Put in refrigerator until cool.
