There is something unique about the chocolate and orange combo – it has a peppy taste as well as a very aesthetic appeal, two characteristics that are usually considered as contrasts! As a result of this special flavour, Candied Orange Chocolates appeal to elders and youngsters, the connoisseurs and the experimenters.
These lovely Orange Chocolates stay fresh for 15 days when stored in an airtight container in the fridge. While making this, make sure you use only Malta oranges and not the regular ones. Also, we have greased the plate with butter and suggest you do the same, because it gives a rich aroma. You can serve these at a party, or wrap them in coloured paper and gift them to someone you love! It would also make a very thoughtful return gift for parties.
