A few words about
our creations...

"Carefully balancing sweetness and bitterness, this iconic candied orange peel is the ultimate embodiment of La Maison du Chocolat's Master Chef's constant quest for the perfect combination.
Candied for two weeks until they become soft and translucent, the bitter taste of long strands of orange peel is muted by the irresistible sweetness of this traditional confectionery, packed with fruity flavor. Incredibly soft on the inside, the orange strands burst as you bite into them, emerging from their dark chocolate shell, created with the utmost precision, to ensure a satisfying texture while showcasing the fruit's flavor.
Created by chocolatier Nicolas Cloiseau, these exquisite and traditional treats convey La Maison du Chocolat's passion for high-end chocolate: this twig-shaped confectionery is transformed into a truly artisanal product in our French workshops. Their subtle flavor combination has become iconic, making them ideal as a gourmet gift, a souvenir of a trip to France, or a treat to enjoy with tea or coffee."

Craftsmanship and the slow candying process

Long, thin strips of orange peel are slowly candied for two weeks until they become beautifully soft and translucent, packed with the fruit's essential flavor. Once the peel has been candied, each strip is sorted by hand, rinsed with clear water to remove excess sugar and dried. This meticulous process is designed to remove as much sugar as possible whilst ensuring that this soft fruit can be covered in chocolate in its entirety. 24 hours later, each strip is delicately coated with a layer of dark chocolate and is transformed into candied orange peel.
