Orangettes Recipe - Candied Orange Peel Dipped in Chocolate

1 large navel orange
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup chopped semisweet chocolate

Using a peeler, cut 3-inch long, 3/4-inch wide strips of orange peel from the orange. Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil and simmer the orange peels for 10 minutes. Drain the peels, rinse them with cold water, and boil them in fresh water for an additional 10 minutes; repeat this process 1 more time.

Bring the sugar and water to a boil in a medium saucepan and stir occasionally until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture has reduced in volume just a bit, about 5 minutes. Add the orange peels and continue simmering the mixture for 15 minutes. Transfer the candied orange peel to a wire drying rack and allow it to sit undisturbed for 45 minutes.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the chocolate in a double boiler over simmering water, and stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Dip the 2/3 of the length of each candied orange strip in the chocolate, leaving 1/3 of the peel exposed, and place it on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Allow the chocolate to set before serving.

This recipe makes approximately 10-12 orangettes.

Cranberry Pretzel Salad

My mom got this from a friend and is sounds yummy & refreshing for a winter, spring or summer dessert, will post pics when I make here.

Cranberry Pretzel Salad

Bottom Layer:

2 cups Crushed Pretzels

3/4 cups butter melted

1 Tbsp. sugar

Mix the above ingredients together and press into a 9X13 inch pan. Bake for 8 minutes on 350 degrees. Cool completely. (Sometimes I stick it in the refrigerator to hurry it along).

Middle Layer:

1-8 oz. pkg cream cheese (leave out until softened)

1-8 oz. tub of cool whip

1/2 cup sugar

Blend these ingredients together with a hand mixer. Spread on top of cooled crust.

Top Layer:

1 Large pkg. Black Cherry Jello

2 cans whole cranberry sauce (I used Ocean Spray brand)

2 cups boiling water

Mix together and cool. I put it in the freezer just to cool it down more quickly. Do Not let it set up. It needs to be liquid when put over the second layer. With a large spoon, carefully put cranberry jello mixture over the cream cheese layer. Carefully place in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours or until jello is set. I put it in uncovered and cover it once it is set up. Enjoy!

This recipe can also be made with mandarin oranges and orange jello or frozen strawberries (thawed) and strawberry jello.


1 pkg. lemon pudding and pie filling mix
1/3 c. sugar
2 c. water
2 egg yolks
2 egg whites
4 tbsp. sugar
1 can coconut, toasted or tinted
1/2 c. whipping cream

Combine pudding mix, sugar and 1/4 cup of the water in a
saucepan. Add egg yolks and blend well. Add remaining water
and cook, stirring until mixture comes to a full boil and is
thickened--about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Beat egg whites until foamy throughout. Add sugar 2 tbsp. at
a time, beating until blended. Continue beating until
mixture will stand in soft peaks. Fold in hot pudding.

Spoon into parfait glasses, layering alternately with
toasted or tinted coconut. Garnish with additional whipped
cream and top with coconut and maraschino cherries. Serves

Milk may be substituted for the 2 cups water used in recipe.
Cherry sauce may be substituted for coconut to make
Lemon-Cherry Parfait.
