Cut peels off both oranges, leaving 1/8 inch of the white membrane under each orange peel piece. Cut each peel into 1/4-inch-wide strips. Refrigerate peeled fruit for snacking or another use.
Bring 4 cups (1 qt.) water to boil in medium saucepan. Add orange peels; simmer over medium-low heat 15 min. Drain.
Combine 1 pkg. dry gelatin mix with cinnamon and 2 Tbsp. sugar in medium bowl; reserve for later use.
Return drained orange peels to saucepan. Add remaining water, dry gelatin mix and sugar. Bring to boil; simmer over medium-low heat 45 min, stirring occasionally. Drain.
Add orange peels, in small batches, to reserved gelatin mixture; toss to evenly coat peels with gelatin mixture. Spread onto parchment-covered baking sheet. Let stand 1 hour.
Melt chocolate as directed on package. Dip 1/2 of each orange peel strip into chocolate; return to baking sheet.
Refrigerate 15 min. or until chocolate is firm.
