    1 sumo mandarin, cut into 8 1/4-inch-thick slices
    1 ½ c. water
    1 c. Hy-Vee granulated sugar
    ½ c. dark chocolate melting wafers, melted

    Things To Grab

    • Wire rack

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Place a wire rack sprayed with nonstick spray in a rimmed baking pan. Combine water and sugar in a skillet. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add orange slices. Simmer, uncovered, 10 to 15 minutes or until flesh turns translucent and syrup thickens. Remove orange slices from syrup. Reserve syrup for another use.
