Chocolate Dipped Orange Peel

Tamara Bonneru


Don't be fooled by the thought that the orange peels will be bitter. These are the ultimate in the flavor of Christmas or any time of the year. I make and sell these each year and can't keep up with orders most of the time. If you like orange and chocolate, you will fall insanely in love with these.
