Why should apples get all the fun? Candy Clementines are sooooo good! I used to think that a clementine was just a song. My parents used to sing “Oh My Darling Clementine'” to me as a baby and supposedly it was the ONLY thing that would calm me down. Anyways, when I discovered that a clementine was actually a fruit I was excited to try them. Now clementines are one of my favorite fruits! Sometimes I like to dip my clementines in chocolate and that is where this idea was born. Candy Clementines are such a fun and easy way to enjoy the taste of chocolate and orange together!
Of course we had to be festive with the Halloween sprinkles too! Some of the clementines I dipped halfway and others I dipped the whole clementine. The clementines that were completely dipped stayed on the sticks better though.
I learned that if you put a little chocolate on the end of your stick before inserting it into the clementine it also stays together better. Or just forego the stick and peel them instead… it’s up to you!
White chocolate also tastes amazing with these… I love the possibilities!!!
- Melting Chocolate kind is up to you... I used white and dark for these
- straws or sticks wider is better
- Prepare melting chocolate according to the package. Peel off the peel of the clementines. Insert a stick or straw and dip into the chocolate. Sprinkle with the sprinkles or leave plain. Repeat for each one and stick in the refrigerator until the chocolate is hard. Enjoy your clementine within one day of dipping. Enjoy!
