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!

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:

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.
