Dark Chocolate-Covered Clementines with Chili Salt
This is my idea of the perfect midday snack. It’s sweet and savoury, salty and spicy. A fireworks of flavours and pleasure. Juice explodes with every nibble and transforms from everyday fruit segment into a sweet and salty afternoon addiction. This is perfect all by itself. It’s also great with your afternoon tea.
I love the combination of orange and chocolate and this is another one of those simple recipes that anybody can make and everybody will enjoy. Three ingredients: Dark chocolate, clementines and salt (or in this case chili salt). One happy ending.
Start by melting the chocolate in a double-boiler then dipping clementine fragments half way deep and resting them on a parchment lined sheet. Finally sprinkle each chocolate-smothered piece with chili salt. Slide it into the fridge for 15 minutes to rest and you’re done.
Don’t rush the cooling process. Let them fully set up and harden. You won’t be disappointed!
From my kitchen to yours, happy eating!
