Chocolate Dipped Clementines

It's almost clementine season here.

You will start seeing those net bags of winter produce from Spain, Chile and Israel (I have seen them from Morocco too).

I am always happy to see them because I hate peeling oranges.

Clementines are a joy to peel, the skins come right off with a single peel and there's no pits!

Such little treasures.

Here, I melted 4 oz. of Trader Joe's dark chocolate in the microwave and dipped in the clementine slices.

Then I sprinkled some chopped pistachios on top. You could also sprinkle a bit of sea salt instead.

Let harden on a paper lined cookie sheet for an hour in the fridge, and voila! you have these yummy little guilt free snacks.

I am putting them out all thru the holiday season.

They take no time to make and are delicious!

Stacey, is that chocolate TJ's 72% dark Belgian chocolate? (I keep that around for my secret afternoon snack.) Wonderful chocolate in those pound plus bars, scored into squares. And so inexpensive. Thinking about taking these to a Christmas party buffet this weekend.

yummy! I've been eating TJ's mandarin oranges 2 weeks now, but this is a nice alternative to just having them plain.

I must say - these are some very classy clementines.

These little clementines are perfectly delightful. It will make you feel like you're eating something too good to be healthy, yet it is as healthy as a sweet can get!

Great idea. Those look so beautiful.
I'm a fan of those pound plus bars at Trader Joe's too.

Stacey, Husband and I, friends, just went on our first Christmas Markets river cruise beginning in Prague through Germany and ending in Paris after a high speed train ride between Frankfurt and Paris. We found your (yes, I give you total credit) Fermiere Yogurt crocks in RED for Christmas. Printed on the ceramic pot are the words "Joyeuses fetes" with 3 stars around the words, vanilla flavor. You rock! So do these crocks!!! Thank you.

Happy Holidays!
