Enjoy this melt in your mouth chocolate with hints of orange.

Serves: 4-6

Preparation: 5 min

Cooking: 15 min

60 ml (¼ c) corn starch

125 ml (½ cup) sugar

a pinch of salt

750 ml (3 c) milk

170 g dark chocolate, coarsely chopped

5 ml (1 t) vanilla essence

zest of 1 orange

1. Combine the corn starch, sugar and salt in a medium saucepan. Slowly whisk in the milk, in a thin steam at first so lumps don’t form, then more quickly once the corn starch mixture is smoothly incorporated. Place over medium to low heat and stir occasionally, scraping the bottom and sides.

2. After 10 minutes the mixture should begin to thicken enough that it will coat the back of a spoon. Add the chocolate and continue stirring for another 2 minutes until the chocolate is combined and the mixture has thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and zest.

3. Distribute among pudding cups or a large serving bowl, and place in the fridge until it sets, about 2 hours.
