Halos® California Mandarins for Easter!

Halos® California Mandarins for Easter!

Have a Healthier Easter with Halos® California Mandarins!

Ok, so the Easter bunny brings chocolate bunnies and beautiful colored eggs. Now, I’m not going to stand in the way of anyone who lets me tie-dye my chickens’ eggs, but if you have to have chocolate anything, why not make it Chocolate Covered Halos? These California mandarins are magnificent covered in chocolate!

Halos® California mandarins are great in chocolate!

I haven’t found a kid yet that doesn’t like Halos. In fact, between the boys and the grandkids, it’s hard enough for me to keep Halos in the house, adding chocolate just makes it harder because then the Moms want them too! That’s how I got the idea to set up the chocolate fountain at Easter, and provide fruit to dip into it – including wonderful Halos® California mandarin sections.

This is an amazing way to eat Halos® California mandarins!

Ethan loves all fruit, especially when covered in chocolate. California mandarins are his favorite

Now, I think you can tell by the pictures how much fun they had. Honestly the Halos® California mandarins were the first to go, and the kids didn’t even dip them in chocolate before they ate them. They just grabbed a couple and headed out the door!

Halos® California mandarins are even good straight out of the peel!

I’ll be starting on Nutrisystem in April (more to come on this soon!) so I’m trying to start eating less junk food and processed sugars. That means I’ll be eating less cupcakes, and more fruits. Did you know that one Halo California mandarin has roughly 50 calories? That makes them a much more healthy snack choice. They are also chock full of Vitamin C! I’m sure I’ll be buying even more Halos® in the future (hmm. I guess that means boxes instead of a bag or a box per week.

Halos® California Mandarins Are Only Around 50 Calories Each!

Here are a few crafts from Halos® you can whip up to make Easter extra special! Just click on the pictures to go straight to the tutorials.

Halos® Easter Buddy

These little chicks are so cute! I think they’d be even better if you used felt to make them instead of paper!

Halos® Mini Basket

I love these little baskets! You could use any fancy cupcake paper to make them, and if you have a Cricut machine, you could cut your own. I will be trying this adorable craft soon!
