Enjoying fresh Darling Clementines® during the go, go, go of the holidays is one of our all-time favorite family traditions! They are the perfect bite-size snack to pack in your pocket and peel when you need a flash of energy during the hustle and bustle of last-minute gift shopping.
Beyond an ingredient fora delicious holiday recipe, Darling Clementines® are like one of a kind, little gifts ready to be unwrapped and enjoyed! Here are a few ways you can get the most out of your holiday clementines this year:
Forget the string of popcorn - add some zest to your tree!
Sprucing up the Christmas tree with bright orange Clementine slices is a great way to invigorate the fragrances of the holidays. Citrus and pine scents combined are sure to fill your home with holiday cheer! These are the zest-scented ornaments you will want to keep around the house all year long.
Cookie cutters aren’t just for dough...
Unlike grandma’s Christmas star cookies, these clementine stars will last through the holidays! Not only will this keep the kitchen smelling fresh and clean, you will also reduce the holiday food waste by reusing the peel.
Speaking of the kitchen… don’t forget about dessert!
Sorry, pretzels. Chocolate-dipped clementines are way tastier! These are so simple and easy to make. Just dip in chocolate, add sprinkles, then refrigerate! Even though these could be a dessert item, we won’t tell anyone if you sneak a few before dinner.
Clementines make the perfect DIY wreath!
Skip the holiday lines at the decor store and make your own holiday wreath! Arrange the clementines in a circle, add a piece of holly or a small pine branch, and voila: perfect table centerpiece.
From our Darling ® families to yours, we hope you have the happiest of holidays filled with good food, great friends and family and the best memories!
