The first time I tasted orangette - after making a batch out of curiosity and kind of expecting to hate it - my tongue perked up in recognition. It was like a gourmet version of those sugared gummy orange "slices" except way better. Orangette, or candied orange peel, is now my go-to giftable sweet.

Whether you chose to give out chocolate or take small people trick-or-treating, you will no doubt find yourself in possession of some amount of Halloween chocolate on November 1. You could shovel it into your mouth mindlessly, dole out a piece each day and make it last until Christmas (my mum's favourite), or you could take a page out of Taco Bell's menu and fry it in a flour tortilla.
There are sweet makers, and there are sweet eaters, and I am firmly in the latter camp. Though I don't mind a cathartic cooking sesh, my main goal - during the holidays especially - is to churn out the treats. This is why this fudge, which takes less than five minutes of your active time, gets made every single Christmas.
