This is a very delicious but deceptively simple pudding using only 4 ingredients and taking 5 minutes to put together, they really need to be mini as they are so rich. I have had a set of these French espresso cups for some time and wanted to make a pudding to serve in them for some time.
I have now made these twice in the last 4 days when people have been for supper, the first time I made them I had about 15 mins to tidy the flat and make a pudding so I threw everything together with no measuring and they came out perfectly, my sort of fuss free recipe. Here is a more scientific version for those who prefer not to bung it in and hope for the best.
Mini Chocolate Orange Pots (Serves 4)
300ml pot double cream
30ml orange liqueur
finely grated zest of one large orange
100g plain chocolate
Pour 2/3 of the cream into a small saucepan and slowly bring to a simmer, whilst the cream is heating add the liqueur and orange zest. Break up the chocolate (I chopped each piece into quarters so it melts quicker).
Let the cream simmer for a minute, stirring all the time so it does not boil over. Take off the heat and add the chocolate and stir until it is all melted. Pour into the espresso cups. Put in the fridge until chilled and serve with the remainder of the cream.
Enjoy and think of lovely shoes! And I have decided that I need better photos of this so will have to endure the hardship of making and eating more of them!
