Hohoho, those holidays are just around the next corner! Here’s one way to be prepared: dip stuff in chocolate…
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.
Toss to coat with white sugar or dip in melted chocolate.
Place on baking paper to dry.
