Fresh watermelon and chocolate are an unexpected pairing that are the stars of this easy, five-minute recipe. It's one of those refreshing, elegant desserts that you can whip up together quickly whenever you're hosting an impromptu dinner party or celebration. Simply toss together the watermelon, orange zest and juice, and sugar in a bowl. Divide among your dessert dishes, then shave the bittersweet chocolate over the fruit. Making chocolate shavings is easiest if you hold the chocolate in your hand for a few seconds to allow the warmth of your hand to soften the chocolate slightly. Use a sturdy vegetable peeler and quick motions for minimal effort and a nice presentation.
