Chocolate-Covered Orange Peels Recipe

Ingredients :

FOR THE PEELS

  • 4 1/2 oz. (130 g) candied orange peel, quartered

FOR THE GLAZE

  • 2 1/2 oz. (70 g) dark chocolate

Method :

Arrange the candied orange peel quarters on a wire rack and let dry at room temperature overnight. The next day, cut them into strips about 1/inch (5-6 mm) wide and temper the dark chocolate: Melt the chocolate in a bain marie or microwave at 113–122°F (45–50°C) (use a cooking thermometer). Pour one-third to one-half onto a marble surface. Let this cool until it reaches 79–81°F (26–27°C), then add it on top of the remaining hot chocolate. When the temperature of this new mixture reaches 86–88°F (30–31°C), it is ready to be used. Glaze the candied orange peels in the tempered chocolate using a fork. Drain the excess chocolate and place the chocolatecovered orange peels on a sheet of parchment. Let set at room temperature.
