A fun recipe with mandarins
Here’s an interactive and fun citrus dessert recipe that children would love and it will also encourage them to eat fruit as dessert!
Step 1) Peel Mandarins
Working with the children – Peel all the mandarins and separate the segments.
Step 2) Cut Mandarins
Slice the bottom off of two segments that are facing each other, diagonally. Secure with a toothpick to keep it into place.
Step 3) Freeze Mandarins
Place on parchment paper and freeze mandarin hearts. (You can also take the opportunity to freeze other heart shaped fruit such as strawberries and banana slices.)
Step 4) Melt Chocolate
After about an hour of freezing the mandarin hearts, melt chocolate for dipping.
Step 5) Dip mandarins
Dip mandarin hearts in melted chocolate, and re-freeze until ready to eat.
