Serves 4.

All you need:

5 medium mandarin oranges
2 tbsp Hy-Vee butter
1/2 c. packed Hy-Vee brown sugar
1/4 tsp Hy-Vee ground cinnamon
2 c. Hy-Vee vanilla Greek yogurt (18 oz)
Fresh mint leaves, to garnish

All you do:

Cut one orange in half. Squeeze juice from orange, yielding about 2 tablespoons juice. Set aside. Peel remaining oranges; cut each crosswise into 4 (1/4-inch thick) slices.
In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in 2 tablespoons orange juice, brown sugar and cinnamon. Continue cooking until brown sugar dissolves. Add orange slices and cook 2 minutes more, spooning caramel mixture over orange slices.
To serve, place orange slices over yogurt, generously spooning with warm caramel sauce. If desired, garnish with mint leaves.
