Short but oh so sweet!

Last year was the first year I really became aware of clementines. I always thought they would taste like an orange. I am not a big fan of oranges. Silly me, I just did not know a clementine would be so much better. They are so sweet and very easy to peel. One big drawback, they have such a short season!

Now, the only thing better than a clementine is a chocolate covered clementine! I made quite a few batches of these last year. It has been on my list of thngs to do, but somehow I just got around to making these this morning.

The stars of the show!

The only time chocolate may take the backseat to any other food! They are so easy to make. I heat the chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until chocolate is smooth. I dip half of the clementine in the chocolate, I think it looks prettier that way. Then place the clementine on parchment paper. It does not take long for them to set and be ready to eat.

Thanks for visiting!
