The Cookbook Challenge No. 11: Cup


Chocolate + Orange + Cookbook Challenge Cup Theme = Bittersweet Chocolate and Orange Pot de Cremes.

I've been on a quest for the past year or so discovering/playing with/creating 'little individual - no sharing with anyone - desserts', and I discovered this little beauty.

Wow, what a dessert! This one really packs a punch and is not for the faint hearted.

It's rich, creamy, full of flavour and extremely chocolaty.

Not being a big lover of chocolate desserts, I found this a little too much for me, but in small little amounts (just a few spoonfuls), it's a dessert you won't easily forget.

Thank God for the hint of orange which really helps cut through all of that richness....just a little.
