Ingredients
  • 4 large oranges
  • 8 ounces water
  • 8 ounces sugar
  • 16 ounces dark chocolate
  • 16 ounces bitter cocoa powder
Directions
  • Slice the ends off of the oranges, score the peel from one end to the other, and remove the peels off the oranges.

  • Slice the peels into thin strips and trim the edges.

  • Using a medium size pot, place the peels in boiling water and blanch them for a few minutes. Rinse the peels, and repeat this process a second time. This is done to remove the bitterness of the peels.

  • Prepare the simple syrup by combining the water and sugar in a sauce pot. Bring the syrup to a simmer, place the peels in the pot, and simmer for 1 hour. Once the peels have cooked, remove them from the pot, and place on a rack to cool and drain.

  • Melt the dark chocolate over a double boiler. Dip the candied orange peels in the chocolate, remove them quickly, and roll them in the cocoa powder. Store the orange peels in an airtight container.
