Chocolate Dipped Overload

I made chocolate dipped spoons, which led me to making chocolate pretzels. I thought I was done. I was reading one of my etsy news groups and they were talking about chocolate dipped orange peels. We always got candied orange peels at the Godiva store but they discontinued making them several months ago. It never occured to me that I could make them myself.
The internet is a wonderful thing. I looked up candied orange peels/rinds and there is a zillion recipes. Some are pretty complicated, some are quite simple but they are all basically the same, boil the peels in sugar water.



This is not the first batch. My husband ate the first batch. This is the second batch, the result of 3 oranges. I have discovered instructions for chocolate dipped, candied orange slices.........OMG.... somebody stop me.
I have even gone so far as to print out candy boxes. They turned out cute but I think they are a bit too small.

I am sticking to the chocolate covered pretzels. We are making forty of them for the kids. Putting them in Christmas Cups.

Ooo! Those chocolate dipped orange rinds look amazing! MMM.

Sorry that the box is too small. I'll definitely be making them bigger next year. Oh well. I'm glad you used them still the same!
