Salted Chocolate Dipped Mandarin Slices
Time: 30 Minutes
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!
Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper and set aside. Peel the mandarin oranges.
In a microwave safe bowl or with the help of a double boiler, melt chocolate chips and add shortening, if desired. Adding shortening is optional - it helps make the chocolate super smooth and easier to work with. Using only melted chocolate will work fine as well.
Dip each slice halfway into the melted chocolate and place on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and repeat until all slices are evenly coated and sprinkled with salt. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until chocolate has hardened. Enjoy!
