I need a recipe for orange slice candy. The kind you see, made with real 
oranges that you dip in chocolate.

Hi Dana,

Let's see . Perhaps what you are asking for is a recipe for making "candied orange slices"? You see, in the cooking parlance that I have always known, "Orange Slice Candy" and "Candied Orange Slices" are not the same thing. "Orange Slice Candy" is candy that's made to look like orange slices, while "Candied Orange Slices" are real orange slices that are candied with sugar.


Here's a recipe for making candied orange slices:

  Candied  Orange  Slices

    a.. 2 large, thin skinned oranges 
    b.. 1 cup sugar 
    c.. 3/4 cup water 

  Method of Preparation
  Wash and dry oranges and slice as thinly as you can, about 1/16th of an 
  inch thick. Use a mandoline if you have one or a very sharp knife. In a 
  medium pot, combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar
  dissolves. Remove from heat and cool ten minutes. Add oranges to pot. 
  Cover and let stand 2 hours. Preheat oven to 225. Line two baking sheets 
  with parchment paper. Arrange orange slices on baking sheet and press flat. 
  Bake two hours or until golden. Cool completely. Store in an air tight 
  container in single layers or between layers of parchment.

  Then, Dana, to coat them with chocolate, just use the second recipe that I 
  sent you before:

  Chocolate  Orange  Slices

   Ingredients : 
   candied orange slices
   1/3 bar paraffin
   1 (6 oz.) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate

   Preparation : 
      Melt chocolate chips and paraffin in double boiler.  Keep hot,
   cut orange slices in half.  Using a toothpick, dip slices in hot
   chocolate.  Cool on wax paper.
