Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Orange Theme Week. Technically these dark chocolate coated, lovely long citrus peels were from oranges, lemons and grapefruits, but that was fine by me.  Dark chocolate combined with lemon can be heavenly if bitter flavors are balanced properly. (Think lemon curd in a small dark chocolate "cup", or espresso with a lemon peel.)

However, in this case, the the peels seemed a bit too bitter, at least for a breakfast chocolate this morning. These are labor-intensive chocolates, and chocolate is expensive. So, be prepared to spend some money for this type of chocolate and dried fruit treat as well. Ounce for ounce, they are about the same price as a very large high-end chocolate bar ($13.25). These might make an elegant garnish for an elaborate cake or dessert.
