Slice of Orange Hot Chocolate
I was still dubious and bought only one to try it out.
Sadly it was bloomed, though only slightly. Blooming is when the cocoa butter in chocolate migrates to the surface. As this was only the slightest haze, I figured a recipe where it was melted would at least mean I didn’t waste that buck. There are 20 orange slices in a Terry’s Chocolate Orange.
So after a few tries at proportions, I made some quite passable hot chocolate with it.
Recipe for One 12 ounce Cup of Hot Orange Chocolate (double or triple as necessary)
Pour milk into a saucepan and add chopped chocolate. Whisk over medium heat then add cocoa and continue to whisk until hot. Don’t boil.
It’s sweet, creamy and with a slight hint of orange, it’s a nice change from overly sweet pre-made mixes. Add another slice if you want really rich hot chocolate.
Next I might try making some chocolate pudding.
Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
