Chocolate-Dipped Candied Orange Slices

  • Author: Misfits Market


  • 3 medium oranges, gently scrubbed and thinly sliced into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1 vanilla bean, sliced lengthwise
  • 1 cup semi-sweet melting chocolate
  • 23 teaspoons flaky sea salt


  1. In a large bowl prepare an ice bath with water and ice. Then, fill a large sauce pan with about 2 cups of water—just enough to cover your orange slices. Bring to a boil, then add the oranges slices and cook for about one minute. Immediately remove orange slices and place into the ice bath immediately until cooled.
  2. Dump the water and using the same saucepan, add the sugar, 1 cup filtered water, and vanilla bean. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Lower the heat to medium-low, then add the orange slices from the ice bath, gently shaking off the water before adding them the saucepan.  Repeat with remaining slices, but aim to create a single layer of oranges—you might need to do this in a few batches.
  3. Set a timer for 45 minutes. Flip the slices every 15 minutes. Repeat until time is done and all orange slices have been coated in sugar.
  4. Use tongs to remove the orange slices and transfer to a parchment-lined cooling tray.  Allow to dry overnight or for at least 24 hours.
  5. When ready, melt chocolate according to instructions. Gently stir, then dip orange slices halfway into the chocolate, and then immediately place onto a wax paper or parchment paper lined tray. Finish with a sprinkling of flaky salt over the chocolate and allow to cool before storing. Enjoy within 2 weeks!
