3 oranges or 4 small oranges, peel only

I will eat anything with dark chocolate. But my favorite of all is dark chocolate orange peel. They're easier to find during the holidays, but never thought of making my own. This in one I'm going to try. Thanks.

I have found great success with this recipe. The reason for all the boiling is to remove bitterness.
