Watermelon all week! Juicy, Salty, and Sweet summer bites refreshing for a summer snack or dessert.
- 3 cups watermelon 1-inch cubes
- 1 cup block chocolate chopped
- sea salt to taste
Line a baking sheet or large plate with wax paper. Place the cubes on the wax paper e so they are slightly spread out and don’t touch each other. Use a paper towel to draw out any excess moisture from the watermelon.
Stick a toothpick at the top of each piece of watermelon. Then, place the baking sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes.
While the watermelon is in the freezer, melt the chopped chocolate. Add a few inches of water to a pot over medium heat and add the chocolate to a heat-resistant or theramal glass bowl and set aside. When the water starts to boil, set the bowl on top of the pot. The water should not touch the bottom of the bowl.
Use a spatula to constantly stir the chocolate until it’s melted.
Hold onto a cube with the toothpick and dip it in the warm chocolate. Let any excess drip off back into the bowl. The chocolate hardens quickly so have the salt ready to sprinkle as soon as the extra chocolate stops dripping. Transfer your complete watermelon bite to the wax paper to set. Repeat with all of your watermelon.
Serve immediately or store in the freezer until ready to serve.
