Orangettes Recipe Orangettes are nothing more complicated than candied orange peels dipped in dark chocolate. Not a bad match when you think that orange and chocolate are two flavors matching perfectly together. Since the orange peel is eaten, it is important to use organic oranges as much as it is to use a quality chocolate — I like my cocoa percentage at 70%. I made a few orangettes batches and kept a few candied orange peels intact to be used in creating mendiants.
