Put 3 cups of water into the sauce pan add 3 cups of sugar into the water heat on high stirring constantly till the sugar has dissolved add the orange peels and keep stirring bring to a brisk boil do not let it boil over you can control the boil with the heat. After about ten minutes the white part of the peel starts to look translucent the peels are done. Take them out of the pan of sugar water and rest them on a cookie sheet. Next take a plastic container and put a table spoon of sugar in it put one peel at a time in it and shake it all around till the peel has a light dusting of sugar on it. Place on a tray to rest. If you don't like chocolate you are done.
Add 2 cups water to pan and place glass bowl on top break up chocolate and place into bowl after about 2 minutes the water below in the pan will melt the chocolate in the bowl like a double boiler. shut off the heat to the pan dip on piece of peel at a time into the melted chocolate and place on a tray that will fit into the refrigerator to harden the chocolate. I also use white chocolate and do half & half's. When I use regular chocolate everyone says that they are like the chocolate oranges that you smash.
