Instructions

Prep-Work:

  • Pulse the nuts coarsely and set it aside.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper.  Peel the clementines and separate the segments.

Steps:

  • Take the 1/3 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds at the high setting and remove it from the microwave. Using a spoon mix, it vigorously and melt it again for 30 to 45 seconds until the chocolate melts. You don't need more than 90 seconds to melt this 1/3 cup of chocolate chips. But the time might vary depending upon your microwave setting. Make sure you stir for every 30 seconds.
  • Now take each clementine segment and dip it in the chocolate. Gently roll and make sure you are coating 1/4 or 1/3 part of the clementine with chocolate.
  • Sprinkle the crushed nuts on the chocolate coating.  You can drizzle one or two teaspoons. Then place them back in the parchment paper. Dip and sprinkle the remaining segments.
  • Let it refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes. And that's it. Relish the treat!

Notes

  • You can use any clementine variety, but make sure they are sweet.
  • Letting the chocolate-coated clementines set on the parchment paper helps a lot. It's mess-free, and it's easy to remove the cuties from the parchment paper.
  • If you are allergic to nuts, skip the nuts and drizzle some coarse sea salt. A pinch of sea salt for each segment would be sufficient.
  • You can use dark chocolate also for this recipe.
