Wow, I am writing this post and its 70+ degrees outside. Is this weather crazy? It was 40 degrees three days ago and now It feels like summer. Well, I will not complain since I love warm weather.
What I like about this season is the holidays. Oh! One of my favorite times of the year. I usually spend Thanksgiving with my family or I go to New York with my husband’s family, which are also my family I always go to Spain for Christmas. This year it will be a little bittersweet for me. No New York and no Spain. Maryland it will be.
To make my holidays a little bit sweeter, I made these orange strips dipped in chocolate. These are a classic in my hometown. My mom absolutely loves these. Every time I go to Spain, she buys them. This recipe is very easy to make and guess what? If you keep them in a cool place they last around 2 weeks! That’s the perfect make-ahead holiday treat!
To make the strips, we have to peel the oranges first. As you know, the rind is pretty bitter, so we want to cook that first. Once the strips are cooked/boiled, we will candy them and finally, we will dip them in chocolate. ooh yummy!
