Oh wow! How tasty is this?! Mandarin oranges dipped in dark chocolate! Pure heaven!
- 1 mandarin orange
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or Semi Sweet Baking Squares
First melt some semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips in a Double Boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, you could use the microwave or even just a regular pan – but try not to burn the chocolate! Take a Mandarin Orange, peel it, split it into sections. Dip the sections in the chocolate. Place on a plate or piece of wax paper to harden. Sprinkle with a little sea salt if you’d like – with or without sea salt they’re going to be delicious!

Et Voilà! A healthy treat! And I just have to point out that this is a great snack idea for anyone on the Flat Belly Diet as it has the MUFA you’ll need – the dark chocolate. For the Flat Belly Diet you eat one MUFA (monounsaturated fatty acid – AKA healthy fats) with each meal: dark chocolate, oil, olives, avocados, nuts or seeds. You pick!
