Candied orange slices are chewy and sweet and so orangey! They’re chrunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Candied orange slices are easy to make at home. They look great as cake decoration and are perfect as edible gifts for the holiday season. You can dip them in chocolate or enjoy them on their own with a cup of tea or coffee!


Candied Orange Slices Recipe

Last year I made candied orange and lemon peel as part of my Advent calender 2016. It was so delicious and easy to make that I thought I’d try candied orange slices for my Advent calendar this year. Candied orange slices are just as easy to make and even more delicious! 😀

How To Make Candied Orange Slices


  • 2 oranges
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (220g)
  • 1/2 cup water (100ml)

Wash the oranges and cut them into 1/4-inch (1/2 cm) thick slices. Bring sugar and water to a boil. Add the orange slices as soon as the sugar is dissolved. Simmer for about 1 hour. Then remove the orange slices with a fork from the syrup and transfer them to a baking sheet lined with baking paper.

  1. Hi Lina, this sound perfectly Christmassy. Shop bought candied peel is pretty nasty and waxy. I’ll be trying this today with some oranges off the tree. The house is going to smell so good!


  2. I love Candied Orange Slices, you have inspired me to make some for Christmas. Hope you have a fantastic week and thanks so much for sharing with us at Full Plate Thursday!
    Come Back Soon
