I found a new blog today. It’s called Verses from My Kitchen and it’s got some amazing recipes on it. This is the one that had me in the market today buying Clementines and sea salt. These are incredible!
Click on either link for Michael’s recipe from his blog Verses From My Kitchen and you can find his recipe for Dark Chocolate-Covered Clementines with Chili Salt. I am not sure if you can buy chili sea salt already prepared or not. I didn’t have any so instead I used red pepper flakes and semi-sweet chocolate instead of the dark. These are very easy to make. Peel and separate the segments of your Clementines and dip them in melted chocolate. Michael used a double boiler and I used the microwave. Then after dipping one end of the Clemetines in the chocolate, set them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with sea salt and your chili pepper flakes. That’s it! Let them cool and set in the refrigerator for approximately 15 minutes. Michael is right when he suggests that you wait until they are fully set before enjoying them. It makes a big difference in how they taste and feel when you eat them.
These are delicious and beautiful to look at. I dare say they are even on the healthy side. :) I’ll be making these for my party on Monday too.
