This is a candy confection made from those sugar coated orange slice candies. My sister gave me this recipe she had gotten it from a co-worker years ago. I love to make this candy along with a few others to give as a Christmas gift. I usually start making candy a few days before Christmas because it can be stored in containers . I just have to hide it! This recipe makes ALOT of candy! One batch can be enough for many, many, gift tins. My fiance's family loves it. His brother-in-law told him to keep me in the family so he can keep getting his orange candy for Christmas! LOL! *****NOTE***** This candy WILL have partially melted little chunks of the orange slice candy in it. You may want to experiment with a 'softer' brand to melt more easily as some jellied candies have a firmer texture than others. Enjoy!!

I tried making this candy. It sounds so delicious. I imagined that the orange slices were going to melt, but they did not. It tasted okay. Next time I will cook it longer and see if it melts to make a smoother candy, not with orange chunks in it. Then maybe I'll make it more often.
