Orange Slice Candy
45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
6 ingredients
3 servings
This is a candy confection made from those sugar coated orange slice candies. My sister gave me this recipe she had gotten it from a co-worker years ago. I love to make this candy along with a few others to give as a Christmas gift. I usually start making candy a few days before Christmas because it can be stored in containers . I just have to hide it! This recipe makes ALOT of candy! One batch can be enough for many, many, gift tins. My fiance's family loves it. His brother-in-law told him to keep me in the family so he can keep getting his orange candy for Christmas! LOL! *****NOTE***** This candy WILL have partially melted little chunks of the orange slice candy in it. You may want to experiment with a 'softer' brand to melt more easily as some jellied candies have a firmer texture than others. Enjoy!!
