  • Place chocolate in top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and thin slightly with milk.

  • Mix almonds and candied orange peel together in the bowl. Add chocolate and toss with a spatula until evenly coated.

  • Spoon mixture into 1 1/2-inch mounds on a sheet of waxed or parchment paper. Chill for at least 4 hours before serving.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute chopped baking chocolate for the chips, if desired.

You may not have to use milk, depending on what kind of chocolate chips you use.
