HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE ORANGE STICKS
Chocolate Orange Sticks are made with a delicious orange jelly filling dipped in melted chocolate - a favorite holiday candy!
Servings: 60 sticks
- 3 Tbsp unflavored gelatin I used 4 of the little packets
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup hot water
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 2 Tbsp frozen orange juice concentrate
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp lemon extract
- 1 tsp orange extract
- 5-6 drops orange food coloring
- 12 oz melting chocolate or chocolate almond bark
Soften the gelatin in cold water and set aside.
Combine sugar and hot water, stir until dissolved. Bring to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the gelatin mixture and slowly boil on medium-low heat for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and add the remaining ingredients.
Pour into well-greased molds. I've used silicone molds and mini loaf pans and the loaf pans work just as well as the silicone mold.
Let stand over night and then dip into melted chocolate. I also drizzled a little white chocolate on top just for fun. Enjoy!
