These sweet treats are so tasty, so addicting, so utterly delectable, you just might forget that you originally fell in love with the insides of oranges.

  • Ingredients:

    4 large oranges

    1 cup water

    pot of water for blanching the peels 

    1 cup sugar

    16 ounces dark chocolate chunks or chips 

    grated orange peel for garnishing

  • Instructions:
    1. Slice the the tops and bottoms off the oranges, score them from one end to the other, and then peel the oranges so that the peels come off in one piece. Slice the peels into thin strips and trim the edges if needed.
    2. In a medium pot, bring water to a boil and then blanch the orange peels in the boiling water for a few minutes. Drain and rinse the peels and repeat the blanching process a second time. Blanching the peels twice removes the bitterness.
    3. In a saucepan, combine the 1 cup of water with the sugar and bring to a simmer. Add the peels to the simple syrup, cover the pot, and simmer for 1 hour. Check it every so often and give it a stir to make sure all the peels are submerged. Once cooked, transfer the peels to a rack to cool and drain.
    4. Melt the dark chocolate either on the stovetop or in the microwave. Dip each of the candied orange peels into the dark chocolate and then place them on parchment paper. If desired, sprinkle with grated orange peel. Once the chocolate has hardened, store in an airtight container.
    Note: Lemons work well too, but have a slightly more tart taste.
