Caramelized oranges in chocolate

Caramelized oranges in chocolate


4-6 oranges (depending on size)
• 600 g sugar
• 300 ml of water
• 250 g of dark chocolate


  1. Cut oranges into circles about 5 mm thick. Thicker — will be bitter, thinner — the middle one will fall apart.
  2. Boil a pot of water, dip orange cups in boiling water for about 3-4 minutes. Water to drain, squeeze oranges (so we get rid of the bitterness).
  3. Heat 300 ml of water with sugar until it dissolves, put pressed oranges into the syrup and cook on low heat for about 1 hour — until the orange peel is clear (or almost transparent).
  4. Remove the mugs, drain excess liquid, put on a baking sheet and dry for about 15-20 minutes. in the oven, preheated to 100-120C. Cool it down.

At this stage, we already get a very valuable thing — caramelized oranges, which can be used in baking, or just eat with tea.

Melt the chocolate in a water bath, dip the orange mugs in half into the melted chocolate, place on baking paper or a silicone mat until the chocolate hardens.

Please … do not put them in the fridge to freeze quickly, give them time!

And the leftover syrup goes very well with unsweetened yogurt …
