How to make Candy Orange Peels Recipe

Somewhere between Barcelona and Italy I fell in love with Candied Fruit, candied oranges dipped in rich dark chocolate to be more specific.  If there is one thing that Europeans have mastered is their skills of turning left over orange peels into a sweet tempting treats.

The cost to purchase them in store or online ranges from $4.99/lb to $8/lb sold on Amazon. Made at home all you need is time, sugar and of course left over orange peels. If you don’t think that’s a cheap impressive treat you shouldn’t be reading this post.

Everyone that has sampled my DIY Candied Orange Peels have questioned, how do you make them. Their response, “well, I didn’t think it would be that easy.” Yes,  they are delicious and easy to make however don’t count the nutritional value in these because honestly there is next to none!
