Chocolate Dipped Tangerines

Is it just us, or do chocolate dipped tangerines give you that warm and fuzzy feeling? Maybe because it’s such a simple yet romantic snack. Maybe you’re looking for a healthier alternative to the traditional Valentine’s Day chocolates. Or maybe a healthier alternative to those cookies you’ve been giving your family. Whatever the occasion, these delectable treats are a must-make in our book!

These chocolate dipped tangerines won’t only put a smile on someone’s face, but will provide some great health benefits, too. Oranges contain Folate, which helps the body produce red blood cells, and is especially important during pregnancy, as it can prevent some types of birth defects. Oranges also have Thiamine, which can help prevent digestive issues, boost the immune system, and prevent tons of different types of diseases. Not to mention the amount of Vitamin C oranges have, too. Now if all that doesn’t say “I love you”, we don’t know what does!
