Ingredients to make Orange Peel Dark Chocolates

  • 1 cup milk powder (use standard 240ml cup)
  • 6 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup (½ stick) butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • ½ cup water

  • 3 tablespoons candied orange peels

How to make Orange Peel Dark Chocolates

  1. Mix milk powder and cocoa powder and pass it through a fine mesh strainer. Chop candied orange peels.
  2. Make syrup with sugar and water and boil till it reaches one string consistency (this consistency is very important else, the chocolate will not set). Add butter to the syrup at this stage. Turn off the heat.
  3. Add milk powder and cocoa mix in parts mixing well after each addition. Add peels.
  4. Mix till a homogenous mixture forms. Mix well. Empty the mixture into the prepared pan. Spread it to uniform thickness. Level the top with a greased spatula. Leave to cool.
  5. Turn the pan on a tray, tap the bottom gently. Slice the chocolate, store in an airtight container.

My Tip:

Add more candied peels for a more intense flavour
