Ever wondered why you don't eat more grapefruit peels? Me neither. I guarantee that you'll look at grapefruit peels in a new light after making these beauties though. They look great and taste even better. Just imagine being able to casually toss off- "Oh yeah, those fancy candies? I made them from grapefruit peels."
Step 1: Get This Stuff Together Before You Start
4 grapefruits (organic wouldn't be a bad idea)
2 1/2 cups sugar (for the syrup)
1 cup sugar (for coating)
Bittersweet chocolate chips (I like Ghirardelli)
4 quart non-reactive (stainless steel good, aluminum not good ) saucepan
A couple cookie sheets
Knife, cutting board, big spoon, etc.
