Chewy, sweet candied oranges, dipped in rich dark chocolate. Sound tempting? This recipe calls for a dehydrator, but the good news is, you can make them even if you don't have one! These candied oranges make the perfect gift for your sweetheart — or you can gift them to yourself.

Chocolate-Dipped Candied Oranges [Vegan]

This Recipe is :



For the Candied Orange:

  • 1 large navel orange
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup white cane sugar

For the Chocolate:

  • 80 grams vegan dark chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil


To Make the Candied Orange:

  1. In a large heavy bottomed saucepan add the water and the sugar. Heat on high and bring to a boil.
  2. Prepare the orange. Slice the nubs off both ends then slice the orange in half. Lay each half on the cut side and using a very sharp knife cut the orange into thin slices. Repeat with both sides of the orange.
  3. Once the sugar-water is boiling, carefully lower the orange slices into the pan. Boil for 5-10 minutes, turning them once.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer the oranges for 30 minutes or until the syrup has reduced, turning them once or twice.
  5. Turn the heat down to low and leave the oranges for a further 10 minutes.
  6. Prepare two wire wracks, placing baking trays underneath to catch any syrup.
  7. Turn off the heat and allow the oranges to cool for a few minutes.
  8. Carefully lift the oranges out of the syrup and place them on the wire wracks. The syrup can be used for whatever you like.
  9. Allow the oranges to drain. If you don’t own a dehydrator, the oranges will now need to air dry for 2-3 days depending on how humid your house is. If you do own a dehydrator, dehydrate the oranges in a single layer for 4 hours at 30°F and then a further 1 hour at 40°F.

To Assemble:

  1. When you are ready to dip the oranges, place a heat proof bowl of a pan of boiling water. Add the chocolate and coconut oil, stirring until melted. Carefully dip half of each orange slice into the chocolate. Leave to cool on a lined baking tray.


Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
