Chocolate Covered Orange Peel Strips

This is a great way to make a tasty snack out of orange peel.  So no more discarding the peel and chucking into the bin or on the compost….make a snack of of it.   It is for Jaffa cake/Terry’s chocolate orange lovers..! The Chief Taster made the comment “wow” when munching these and there were no leftovers…

Instead of sugar I used erythritol but you could use any other granular sugar substitute if you wished.

[recipe title=”Chocolate Covered Orange Peel” servings=”1-2″ time=”30mins” difficulty=”easy”]



2 oranges

100g chocolate (I used high cocoa solids)

1 cup erythritol (or other sugar substitute)

Had to quickly photography these before they got eaten!


  • Cut the oranges into quarters and peel the rinds keeping them in one shape.
  • Cut the rinds into thin sticks.
  • Place the orange rinds into a saucepan of boiling water and simmer for 15 minutes.  Drain the water and repeat.
  • Place half the erythritol in a saucepan with a cup of water.  Put the orange rinds in the saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the orange rinds, drain and then dip into the remaining erythritol and cool.   I leave them overnight but you could go onto the chocolate dipping stage once they are cool.
  • Melt the chocolate either in a bain marie or zap in the microwave.
  • Dip the orange rinds in the chocolate and place on a cooling rack until the chocolate sets.
  • Eat and enjoy!
