1. Chocolate-Dipped Clementines
Chocolate and oranges are a classic holiday flavour combination and these no-bake treats couldn’t be easier to whip up. Simply dip clementine segments in melted dark chocolate, then top with festive sprinkles and refrigerate until firm.

This cheat using flour tortillas is perfect for last-minute cookie exchanges and entertaining.
