Dark Chocolate Covered Clementines & Grapefruit
These dark chocolate covered clementine and grapefruit slices are an excellent holiday gift!
So, talk about two weeks of utter craziness. We moved into a new house, I started a new job, celebrated my sister-in-law's wedding, and lived through a stunner of an election. This has been an emotional, exhausting, and exhilarating several days. I've been trying to keep up with the blog, but every post takes anywhere from 5 to 8 hours to do (from planning the recipes, testing them, photographing them, editing photos, writing posts, setting up the newsletter, etc), so it's been tricky to find the time. Posts have been few and far between this month, but as I settle into my schedule, I'm looking forward to getting back into my routine and spending more time here.
As I piece together my kitchen post-move I've discovered I have over-abundance of mixing bowls. I have somewhere on the order of 30 mixing bowls of varying sizes. The movers expressed concern over my love of kitchen supplies - they said they'd seen worse, but that I was pretty bad.
I just love these photos - the way the chocolate moves and hardens is stunning. You might be thinking this recipe is just an excuse to consume dark chocolate, and you would be right about that.
These little treats package up nicely and can freeze as well. They are perfect gifts, but remember they do cook down a bit, so if you need to give out lots of treats, you'll need to double or triple the recipe.
You're probably thinking, what am I going to do with all the leftover clementine flesh after I make these? Do not fear, I have a bundt cake recipe coming out later this week that uses them all up!
