Dark Chocolate Sea Salted Tangerine

Two Tangerines Covered with Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt

How can you make a sweet and juicy California tangerine even better? I say, cover it in dark chocolate and sea salt!

The combination is out of this world and is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth in a healthy way.

It’s also a clever method to get your kids excited about working fruits into their diet.  I made these fun “tangerine pops” and they loved them!

Here’s the easy recipe:

Ingredients: tangerines, coconut oil, sea salt, dark chocolate chips

  • California tangerines
  • Dark chocolate chips
  • Coconut oil (or traditional shortening)
  • Sea salt

Dark chocolate chips and coconut oil in mixing bowl

Add the chocolate chips and the coconut oil to a double boiler, or just use a metal bowl over  a pot of boiling water. Melt over medium heat until thoroughly melted.

Ratio is 4:1, so every cup of chocolate chips, you should use 1/4 cup of coconut oil.

Peeled and sliced tangerines

Peel and separate the tangerine into sections.

Dipping half of the tangerine into the dark chocolate mixture

Dip each section into the melted chocolate, leaving a portion uncovered for easy eating.

Half dark chocolate covered tangerines with sea salt sprinkled over on baking sheet

Sprinkle the sea salt over each chocolate section before the chocolate cools. Place in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set.
