Estimated values based on one serving size.

Preparation

  1. Fill a pot with water and simmer on high heat until it reaches boiling point.
  2. Carefully peel the skin off the oranges and place into the pot of boiling water, stirring for 5 minutes. Drain the water and repeat.
  3. Carefully slice the orange peel into 5mm thin pieces. In a medium sized pot, place 500g of sugar and 500ml of water over medium high heat, stirring until the sugar is fully dissolved and small bubbles start to form at the surface of the water. Add the orange peel pieces into the syrup, stirring for 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let cool.
  4. Repeat this step and boil for another 5 minutes. The orange peel should be semi-translucent.
  5. Take out the peel and reserve the syrup. Place the orange peel on a drying rack and cover with a towel. Let it rest for a minimum of 4 hours, or overnight until dry.
  6. Using a double boiler, melt the chocolate until smooth. Line a tray with baking paper and take the dried orange peel. Using chopsticks, take a piece of orange peel and dip it into the chocolate until half of it is covered. Repeat with all of the other pieces, then place in the freezer for about 10 minutes, or until the chocolate has fully set.
  7. Take the remaining sugar and place it on a small plate. Take the orange peel pieces out of the freezer and roll them in the sugar.
  8. Serve.
