Preparation
Powder the sugar in a mixer. Add the candied oranges and pulse it again. Let the oranges be ground coarsley.
And for sugar i have used the excess sugar left out during canding the orange peel, so i have that little more of the Orange flavour.

If you do not have candied orange peel, just use some grated orange rind.
