I kid you not, the nutritionist at Hy-Vee said you could eat as much of this chocolate as you want. So of course I bought the two ingredients necessary to make this snack, and upon discovering my children can make this almost completely on their own, we have made it for five different events.
It’s nutritious, fast, easy and kid-friendly.
Best. snack. ever.
First, buy chocolate. Dark chocolate.
And while you’re at the store, get those little clementine oranges. Some of you probably know them as Cuties. And get diapers. And probably eggs and maybe shampoo. Just trying to help…
Melt the chocolate in a double broiler, microwave, or in a glass measuring cup hooked to the side of a pot by its handle for your own double-broiler-in-a-pinch. Whatever works for you. Just remember that water is the enemy of melted chocolate so make sure whatever you use is perfectly dry and that no water can splash into it while you’re working. If you get water in the chocolate you will need to throw it out, which is tragic to say the least.
Then spread out a sheet of wax paper, peel the clementines, and remove the glass from the hot water if you are letting your kiddos do this.
They take an hour or so to set up on the counter, but if you put them in the fridge or in your freezing cold garage, they’ll be ready in minutes!
