How to Make Candied Orange Slices | Hungry AF

Got an orange? Are you bored with a lot of time on your hands? Make these super easy and delicious candied orange slices! Great for a last-minute holiday treat.

For more Hungry AF recipes:


1 navel oranges
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup granulated sugar
4 oz dark chocolate


Thoroughly wash the orange to get rid of any waxy residue. Slice off and discard the ends, and slice the rest of the fruit into ¼” slices.

In a wide pot, heat and stir water and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Avoid stirring after this point to prevent crystallization. Bring to a gentle boil and add the orange slices.

After 15 minutes, lower the heat to medium-low. Flip over the slices and continue cooking on low for another 15-20 minutes, until the peel becomes translucent and the syrup has thickened.

Place a wire rack on top of a lined baking sheet, and transfer the candied slices on top to cool. Reserve orange syrup for other uses.

Melt chocolate and dip slices halfway. Place slices on a parchment-lined tray and chill.
