Ingredients  

  • 3 cups cubed watermelon (1-inch cubes)
  • 1 cup chopped chocolate
  • Sea salt, for garnishing (optional)

Equipment:

  • Toothpicks

Instructions 

  • Line a baking sheet or large plate with wax paper. Arrange the watermelon cubes on the wax paper so that they aren't touching one another. Stick a toothpick atop each piece of watermelon then place the baking sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Melt the chopped chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. Dip each frozen piece of watermelon into the melted chocolate. Shake off any excess chocolate then immediately sprinkle the chocolate with sea salt. (The chocolate will harden very quickly.) Return the dipped watermelon pieces to the wax paper to set fully. Serve immediately or store in the freezer until ready to serve.

Kelly's Notes:

  • Do not use chocolate chips in this recipe, as they have a waxy coating that makes it more difficult for the chocolate to adhere to the watermelon.
