Dunked deliciousness

 

Hohoho, those holidays are just around the next corner!  Here’s one way to be prepared:  dip stuff in chocolate…

 

Chocolate-Covered Pretzels

Melt in double boiler or for about 2 minutes in 500W microwave:

 

375 g (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate

¼ C butter

 

Stir until smooth.  Dip: 4-dozen small pretzels

 

Chill on baking paper for about 1 hour until firm.

Candied Orange Peel

Cut into narrow strips:  peels of 2 large navel oranges

 

Cover with cold water and bring to boil.  Drain.

Repeat, cooking 4-5 times, until skins are very soft.

 

Combine in saucepan:

 

½  C white sugar                          

¼  C water

 

Add orange peel; simmer until syrup is absorbed into the peels. 

Let cool.

 

Toss to coat with white sugar or dip in melted chocolate. 

Place on baking paper to dry.
