Chocolate Candied Orange Peels

Recipe provided by Chef Crusco Catering in Austin, Texas


  • Candied Orange Peels
  • 1/3 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream


  1. Place all the chocolate chips in a small bowl.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil and immediately remove from the heat.
  3. Pour over chocolate and let sit for 2-3 minutes. Then whisk until smooth.
  4. Take the candied orange peels and dip half of it into the chocolate ganache.
  5. Place each peel onto a parchment lined sheet pan for 1 hour or until the chocolate hardens.
  6. Peels may be kept refrigerated in an air tight container for weeks but it is best to serve and eat immediately.
  7. Serve the peels as a dessert or with coffee and my favorite way – with a glass of Scotch. Enjoy!
