Dipping clementines in chocolate with a sprinkle of sea salt is always a good idea for a dessert. If you want to decrease the sugar and add some different flavours try dipping them in coconut butter and then roll them in ground pistachios or hibiscus. Easy and delicious. Really, you could roll these in anything- chopped nuts, dried lavender or rose, matcha, dandy blend, drizzle some caramel or go with ground coffee. The options are endless!
If your coconut butter is solid (as mine is here in Toronto 75% of the year) then let the jar sit in a warm bath of water for 15 minutes or until it is soft and pourable. I don’t advise adding any sweetener to the coconut butter as it makes it thicker and harder to work with. Plus, it is naturally sweet already.
For the hibiscus and pistachios I simply ground them both in my spice grinder until I got a texture that I liked.
Honestly, these are so easy that you should just go make them right now! Happy Dipping!

Coconut Butter Dipped Clementines with Pistachios and Hibiscus
Easy, healthy coconut butter dipped clementines. Paleo and vegan.
8–10 clementines, peeled and separated
1/3 cup coconut butter, melted*
3 tbsp ground pistachios**
3 tbsp ground hibiscus**
- Dip each clementine segment into the softened coconut butter.
- Roll the dipped end of the clementine in either the pistachios or hibiscus.
- Let them sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes to allow the coconut butter to firm up.
*If your coconut butter is too firm place the jar in a warm bath of water until it becomes easy to work with.
**I ground my own using a small spice/coffee grinder
