Clementines & Chocolate

This recipe is so easy, I wouldn't even consider it a recipe. It does, however, look like you spent hours working on this and is quite impressive. It has the right balance of salt and sweet. Chocolate and orange are always a nice combination.

Clementines & Chocolate (Adapted from Health)

2 oz bittersweet chocolate
2 T salted pistachio nuts, chopped finely
4 clementines, peeling and sectioned

Melt chocolate either in a double boiler or microwave. Dip clementine sections halfway into the chocolate and place on silapt (or parchment paper). Sprinkle chocolate edge with pistachios. Chill for 1/2 hour to set chocolate.

Lined up like little soliders
I preferred to put the chocolate on alternating edges so that you could line them up in opposite directions for serving. I highly recommend using a silpat for making these as they did not stick at all. Although I guess you can put them directly on the plate but it does get a little messy with the pistachios.
