Chocolate dipped watermelon with salt #sogood #summer

This was a great idea I found on pinterest.  It is super yummy and healthy to boot!

Chocolate watermelon with salt!

You will need :
Unsweetened bakers chocolate  (or chocolate chips so long as they are Unsweetened – the watermelon is sweet enough)
Watermelon
Salt
Lots of plates /napkins!

First cut your watermelon if it is not already cut.

Then start melting your chocolate squares in a small skillet over medium-low heat.  Stir often. Do this until completely melted.

Pour some salt onto a plate for easier pinching.  I liked sea salt but others have said that regular salt was less salty so it’s up to you.

Once done,  take a spoon and drizzle the chocolate over a slice of watermelon.  Then pinch a bit of salt and sprinkle over the top.   The sweeter the watermelon, the more salt you should use.

And enjoy!
Keep in mind that while this is a relatively healthy snack,  watermelon and chocolate do have a good amount of natural sugar and should be eaten in moderation. Also remember that the salt you apply to your food is only 10% of the sodium you ingest, so don’t panic too much about that.
