Sounds yummy right? The combination of chocolate and watermelon alone is a winner and add a sprinkle of sea salt on top and it takes it to another level. We’ll be seeing watermelon all over the farm stands and stores soon so save to your Summer recipes!

Place watermelon on a cutting board, cut in half and then in half again, make eight slices from on of the wedges

I made mine about 4 inches wide at the rind end

Blot both sides with paper towels to remove excess moisture, this will allow the chocolate to adhere better

Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil, I did this in the microwave in 39 second increments, stirring in between, you can also use a double boiler if you wish

Dip each slice leaving some of the fruit showing at the top

place on lined baking sheet

Sprinkle each with a little sea salt

Let harden in fridge and enjoy! 🍉
