DIRECTIONS

  • Using a peeler, cut 3-inch long, 3/4-inch wide strips of orange peel from the orange.
  • Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil and simmer the orange peels for 10 minutes.
  • Drain the peels, rinse them with cold water, and boil them in fresh water for an additional 10 minutes; repeat this process 1 more time.
  • Bring the sugar and water to a boil in a medium saucepan and stir occasionally until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture has reduced in volume just a bit, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the orange peels and continue simmering the mixture for 15 minutes.
  • Transfer the candied orange peel to a wire drying rack and allow it to sit undisturbed for 45 minutes.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the chocolate in a double boiler over simmering water, and stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Dip the 2/3 of the length of each candied orange strip in the chocolate, leaving 1/3 of the peel exposed, and place it on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Allow the chocolate to set before serving.
