Satsumas dipped in dark chocolate and coconut oil and sprinkled with desiccated coconut. A healthy, low sugar snack perfect for the festive season!
Thankfully my taste buds have developed since those days and I now very much appreciate these bursts of Vitamin C on a cold and wintery day.
However trying to convince my fussy eater that they are an exciting and tasty snack is another story so I decided to spruce up the humble satsuma with my favourite ingredient….chocolate!
Sorry to mention the “C” word again when it’s still November, but I think these satsumas make the perfect snack for after school or to tackle that mid afternoon work slump.
Lets face it, we all over-indulge a little (or a lot!) in December so having some healthy and nutritious snacks to hand will help balance out all those extra Christmas treats!

- 75g dark chocolate (use vegan if necessary)
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tsp desiccated coconut

- Remove from the fridge and dip each segment in the chocolate a second time and then immediately sprinkle on some desiccated coconut. Return to the fridge for a further 5 minutes.
