Chocolate Orange Peel

When I was in Provo, UT...there was Sweet's Candy and my favorite was a chocolate covered orange stick. I mean I REALLY loved that.  It's truly about the only candy of theirs that I did love.  Now I gather they only make it maybe during the holidays.  So I was delighted to discover the following recipe and submit it for your sweet enjoyment.

Peel 3 oranges.  Cut the rind into strips and boil in water for 15 minutes, then drain and rinse.

Simmer 3 cups of sugar and 3 cups of water.  Add the peel and cook until soft, at least 45 minutes ( Mine went for 1 hour).

Drain and toss in sugar.  Transfer to a rack to dry for about 8 hours.

  Dip in melted chocolate of your choice.  Allow to harden...and eat.
