Salted Chocolate Dipped Mandarin Slices

I hope you had the most wonderful Christmas this year. After all the indulgent food and sweets we consumed over the last couple of days (chocolate fondue, anyone?), I was in the mood for a healthy yet satisfying snack. As we sat dipping all sorts of fruits, marshmallows, and pretzels into the ever-continuing stream of chocolaty-goodness of our chocolate fountain, I was reminded of a recipe I had seen a couple of years ago on Food Network. Slices of mandarins or clementines dunked in chocolate… only this time I decided to sprinkle sea salt on top. If I had to live on this snack for the rest of my life, you would hear no objection from me! It’s the most addictive thing I’ve eaten in a long time.

There’s no better time to enjoy these than right now. Mandarin Oranges are so abundant and couldn’t be tastier. Extremely sweet and juicy – loved and adored by young and old. You might have some laying around the house todays since it’s a common stocking stuffer. Turn them into this fun and gorgeous snack!
