Chocolate and citrus have always been a somewhat natural pairing. The tangy tasty notes of citrus often complement and diversify the bittersweet, smooth and creaminess characteristics of chocolate and especially dark chocolate in my opinion. Citrus fruit is dominant throughout the winter, prevalent in many forms from the sweet and succulent cuties to the bitter, crisp flesh of a grapefruit. Having inherited my mother's affinity for chocolate, I naturally tried to combine the two, citrus and chocolate. The following Instructable is the result. Follow along and enjoy! These little guys make a great snack you can keep in your fridge or a wonderful and quick snack to serve at a party or gathering.

Step 1: Ingredients

Gather the following:

  • Clementines, Cuties, or Mandarins (I used 5)
  • 1/2 Cup of Dark Chocolate Chunks
  • 2 Teaspoons of Sea Salt

Other Materials:

  • Cookie Sheet
  • Parchment Paper
  • Microwave Safe Bowl
