After we make fresh-squeezed orange juice for our Tea Room & Café, we use the peels to create this luxurious confection.

Fresh orange peels are candied in-house to ensure a maximum burst of flavor. Each is covered three times in our signature Swiss dark chocolate.

Praised by Bon Appétit as an "absolute classic that needs no improvement" in The Best Chocolates to Buy Online Right Now.

NEW 3 oz Wedges: Made the same as the classic, they are a larger piece of peel, so you get more orange in every bite.

The making of 

Did you know that this customer favorite takes anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks to make?

The process begins when we first freshly squeeze the oranges and serve the juice as a beverage in our café and tea room. We immerse the rind in a solution of salt water to soften the peels and loosen the pulp from inside. After we scoop out the pulp, we cut the peels into perfectly symmetrical stips (and triangles for wedges). Once they are cut, we bathe the rind in a simple syrup and bake them at a low temperature.

After several days baking, we add more simple syrup. The syrup is added daily for a full week allowing the peels to both sweeten yet still maintain their natural citrus flavor.

Once the candying process is complete, the peels are run through a chocolate enrober three times, several days apart. The enrober covers them in 60% dark chocolate, which balances the sweetness of the candied peels and amplifies their citrus flavor.
