All About Clementines December 18, 2018
With it’s sweet and tangy flavour, it’s no surprise clementines are a holiday favourite. Orange you glad we’ve got all the deets and a clementine recipe for you?
While we love to enjoy them while in season (October to January), clementines are truly a snack you can enjoy year round. They’re so easy to peel and they add a refreshing touch to basically anything. Plus, they’re not only delicious but full of Vitamin C. It’s no wonder they’re known as the ‘crown jewel’ of the citrus world!
Chocolate-Dipped Clementines with Sea Salt:
This sweet clementine recipe makes the perfect snack for those holiday parties or as a light dessert to follow your holiday feasts. Sweet, tangy, and salty all in one = a clementine trifecta!
What you need:
- Dark Chocolate Chips
- Sea Salt Flakes
Step 1: Peel Clementines
Peel the clementines and separate each individual orange segment.
Step 2: Melt Chocolate
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips in a microwave for 1-2 min. (Pro Tip: Be careful not to let them heat up too long, they’ll burn and harden up!)
Step 3: Dip Clementines
Dip half of each orange segment into the chocolate then lay it on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Don’t go overboard on the chocolate! It’s all about balance. (But go ahead and eat a few handfuls of chocolate chips, we won’t judge!)
Step 4: Add Sea Salt
Sprinkle the orange segments with sea salt while the chocolate is still soft.
Step 5: Refrigerate
Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator until the chocolate is firm. This should take around 10-15 min.
Step 6: Finish and Serve
Transfer to a platter and enjoy every delicious bite! Tag your chocolate clementines with #HelloFreshLife so we can see all your sweet creations.
