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.
