Clementines in Spiced Syrup-Thanksgiving Desserts

I've been thinking about this flavor combination for a few weeks.
I was asked to do a Thanksgiving dessert table and wanted to offer something a little different than the usual pumpkin pie or sweet potato thing with marshmallows-which I'm now being told is a side dish...weird.
So the other day, meandering through the aisles at the grocery store, I saw those little cups of mandarins in syrup and thought that a lovely, light little dessert in a cup would be a nice change in the regular line-up of dessert-A little bit of citrus, a little bit of spice and a little bit of cream with some pomegranate jewels thrown in there for color and browned butter crumble for texture.
