A Very Citrusy Dessert

Happy Weekend dearies!

Are you in need of a super easy dessert to bring to a friend's house or party? Or are you just not feeling in the baking sort of mood but want a sweet treat?

Well look no further! Today I thought I would share with you my latest obsession, a take on chocolate covered strawberries.... chocolate covered clementines!

It may sound weird, but I promise these are super delish ;)

Here's how to make this really simple treat:

Put some chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. The amount depends on how many you want to make but for one clementine I filled about 1/3 or so of this little bowl. 
The only trickish part about this is melting the chocolate. I usually put it in the microwave for about 5 intervals of 25 seconds. I assume all microwaves would vary a little though!

After that, peel your clementine(s).

Then, dip! I usually do about half to 3/4 covered. Dip as you wish my friends! ;)

And viola! Super pretty presentation too. I would recommend placing them on wax paper after but we were out so I just used a big plate instead. Pop them into the fridge for a half hour or so and you are good to go!

Some other great ideas for chocolate dipping are:
bananas (I mean seriously though, YUM)
squares of pound cake

What do you think of this yummy dessert?
Have you tried it before? Do share!!
