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!
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! 😀
- 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.
Let the orange slices dry for some days at room temperature. The remaining orange syrup is delicious in tea!
