Chocolate Orange

Ingredients

  • 2 Large thick orange peels (I used Jaffa)
  • 250g Caster Sugar
  • 100g Dark Chocolate

You can cut your peel however you like. I would suggest that it is no bigger than your thumb. Remove any remaining pith on the peel with a sharp knife or peeler. Pop the peel into a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Let the peel soak for 5 mins. Drain then repeat once more. In a pan add 250ml of water and the caster sugar. Allow the sugar to dissolve and then add the orange peel. Leave to simmer for 10 mins. Remove the peel from the pan and leave to dry over night. Once dried completely, in a bowl melt the chocolate. Dip the orange into the melted chocolate and then rest on greaseproof paper until the chocolate has hardened. There you have it.. Delicious chocolate orange.

Keep in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
