3 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup water
1 pkg (12-oz) semisweet chocolate chips
1 tbsp grated orange rind
4 cups coarsely chopped walnuts

In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, orange juice and water.  Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves and the mixture boils.  Cook until the mixture reaches 234 degrees on a candy thermometer (soft ball stage), stirring occasionally.  Remove mixture from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips and orange rind.  Stir until the chocolate is all melted.  Stir in the walnuts.

Pour the candy into the prepared pan; set aside to cool.

Cut the cooled candy into 1-inch squares.

Candy may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature.

Yield: 9 dozen candy squares.
