Ingredients

  • 3 boxes store bought chocolate pudding mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 small orange, zested
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Candied Orange Peel, for garnish, recipe follows
Candied Orange Peel:
  • 1 large navel orange
  • 3/4 cup sugar

Directions

Make the pudding according to the package instructions. Add the cinnamon, orange zest, and red pepper flakes before chilling in a large trifle dish. Before serving, sprinkle the top with chopped Candied Orange Peel.

Candied Orange Peel:

Using a vegetable peeler, cut the orange part of the peel from the stem end of the orange down to the navel end, forming long 3/4 to 1-inch-wide strips. Bring a heavy small saucepan of water to a boil. Add the peels and cook for 1 minute. Drain and then rinse the peels under cold water. Repeat cooking the peels in the saucepan with fresh boiling water and rinsing under cold water 2 more times.

Stir the sugar and 1/2 cup of fresh water in a heavy small saucepan over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil. Add the orange peels and simmer over medium-low heat until tender, about 15 minutes. Using tongs, transfer the peels to a sheet of parchment paper to dry slightly, about 1 hour.
