What a great way to get the kids involved in the kitchen! Adam absolutely adores clementines, I can hardly keep enough around. Last weekend, I came up with the idea to make them even more delectable.
It doesn’t take much to put a smile on his face. Once I mentioned the idea of doing this, he was all in! We have a super fun time together in the kitchen, a great way to get quality time in together, not to mention a ton of laughs!
I always have dark chocolate chips hiding in the pantry for those quick chocolate fix attacks. Theres nothing more satisfying to me than that salty sweet flavor complex & I’m always coming up with ways to cure the craving.
Super quick & easy to make, just pop some chocolate into a double boiler & wait for the magic to begin! (It was hard keeping the clementine segments around, nom-nom.)
The key here, is to keep the stimulation going. We do this by creating something quickly to keep the interest high & engaged. This was the perfect recipe for just that.
Adam approves! Once made, pop them in the freezer to harden & store in an air tight container for up to 3 days. (That is if they even last that long, these didn’t even make it to the freezer!)
So much fun!
- 3 clementines, segmented
- 3/4 cup dark or semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon himalayan rock salt
- Prepare a sheet pan/cookie sheet with parchment paper. (make sure this fits in the freezer, you may need another container or smaller on that does.)
- Place the chocolate in a large stainless bowl.
- Add water to a saucepan, about half way, creating a double boiler.
- Turn the heat up to med – med low.
- Wait about 5-8 min. & stir with a heat proof spatula.
- Gather the orange segments & dip them half way into the chocolate until covered.
- Place them on the parchment lined pan.
- Once all dipped, put the pan in the freezer to harden.
- Enjoy now or save for later – store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to three days.
