Chocolate-Dipped Candied Orange Peel

by Heather on May 13, 2011

I have a confession to make.  I lied.

Over the Christmas season there were some bloggers who talked about loving the orange-and-chocolate combination and, in the interest of remaining neutral, I said I liked it too.  But at the time that was a lie.


I’m sorry.  It will never ever happen again.  Why?  Two reasons:  lying is bad and I’ve found that every time I say I don’t like something I end up loving it about 2 months later.  But mainly because it’s bad…

I look back on poor, sad, pitiful me around that time and wish that I’d only given the orange-chocolate combination a chance.  I mean goodness, it’s fantastic!  Who knew?!


Apparently everyone else BUT me 😉

The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help me God is that these are probably my new favorite breakfast/lunch/dinner and 2 snacks.  They’re buttery (who would have ever thought any part of the orange would be described as buttery?!), crunchy, sweet, and decidedly bitterly orange.  They are both decadent and refreshing.


In short I’m addicted.

So here’s the deal:  follow this recipe and you can’t go wrong!  The only thing that I did differently was I only let mine dry for a day or so before coating in chocolate, which was the perfect amount of time at 5,280 feet above sea level.  But regardless, make them…the only time you probably shouldn’t eat them is right after they’ve been boiled in syrup.  Trust me, it’s not worth the excruciating burned mouth.


Trust me.
