Chocolate and orange is an iconic wintertime pairing for good reason; the rich chocolate contrasts beautifully with the peak-season oranges. Here, we've made an easy candy from this dynamic duo that is perfect for giving as holiday gifts this year.


  • 16 sweetened dried orange slices (available at

  • ¾ cup dark melting wafers (about 4 ounces), such as Ghirardelli or Merckens, melted; or Tempered Chocolate

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped roasted almonds or raw pistachios, preferably Sicilian

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped candied ginger or dried apricot


  1. Dip half of each orange slice into chocolate; roll dipped edges in nuts and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Add a few pieces of candied ginger.

  2. Let stand until set, about 15 minutes. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 month.
