      Thanks for posting this recipe! I was in need of some candied orange peel for another recipe, so made yours, & it is extremely good! Fortunately there is plenty left for me to try with chocolate, as you suggest. I remember years ago my grandparents used to have orange sticks on hand for when the grandkids came over. Should be especially good dipped in a dark chocolate, I think! Again, many thanks for your recipe!
