Recipe for Caramelized Clementine Sundaes


Clementines, or the similar Mandarins and small tangerines, are easy to peel, low in calories, and very flavorful. When they’re in season, it’s easy to grab a few for snacks, and kids love them because they are small. They’re great in salads, too, mixed with fancy greens, sprinkled with toasted almonds, and tossed with a fruited vinaigrette dressing. For a quick and easy dessert, these juicy little citrus fruits can be caramelized and served over ice cream.

For a more substantial dessert, place a brownie or piece of chocolate cake (the combination of chocolate and orange is divine) under the ice cream, or use the caramelized Clementines over plain white or pound cake. Toasted almonds or other nuts can be added for crunch. The recipe doubles easily for those who prefer a larger amount of ice cream topping.

4 Servings

4 clementines or mandarins

2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 pinch cinnamon

2 cups highest quality vanilla or ginger ice cream
  1. Using a zester, zest thin strips of peel from the clementines to use for garnish; set aside.

  2. Peel the clementines and divide them into individual segments.

  3. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat; stir in the brown sugar and cinnamon.

  4. When the mixture is bubbly, add the clementines and turn the heat to medium high.

  5. ””
  6. Cook the clementines, stirring constantly, until they are caramelized and browning on the edges, 3-5 minutes.

  7. Assembly: Place a 1/2-cup sized scoop of ice cream in each of four serving bowls.

  8. Spoon equal amounts of the clementine mixture over the scoops of ice cream and garnish with the strips of peel (extra peel can be placed in a Ziploc-type bag and stored in the freezer for use in baked goods and salads).

  9. Serve immediately.
