  • 1 can (15 ounces) mandarin oranges
  • 1/3 cup chocolate: milk, dark, semi-sweet, white -- whatever is your favorite! (I like milk best, but use dark for a healthier treat)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut or vegetable oil
  • Optional: coarse sea salt or sparkling sugar


  • Thoroughly drain the Mandarin oranges and place on a parchment paper covered plate. Allow to dry a bit more at room temperature and then freeze for 8 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in increments of 15 seconds, stirring in between each increment for 10 seconds until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Remove the oranges from the freezer and gently dip one end halfway in the chocolate and transfer back to the plate.
  • If desired sprinkle the mandarin oranges (before the chocolate fully hardens) with coarse sea salt (salty-sweet) or sparking sugar (crunchy sweet). Place in the fridge until the chocolate is set up, about 10 minutes.
  • Enjoy when chocolate has fully set up. Best enjoyed within 1-2 hours of making.
