In the Kitchen – Candy Mandis

You will need:

6 Mandarins

3 tablespoons of honey

1 tablespoon olive oil

Toppings – for dipping (I used coconut, sesame seeds, poppy seeds and crushed peanuts)

What to do:

Segment the Mandarins and remove all the stringy bits

In a small saucepan heat the honey and olive oil. Stir the mixture and allow it to simmer for 5-10 minutes. Simmering it like this will ensure your honey mixture sets like toffee once it cools.

Slide the Mandarin pieces onto wooden skewers (one piece per skewer) and dip them into the hot honey mixture before coating them in one of the toppings.

Allow the honey to cool and then serve – I used one of the whole mandarins as a base to make a Mandarin Porcupine for a bit of fun!
