Chocolate orange cups

Chocolate and orange are a wonderful combination and I am always after easy, prepare-ahead delicious desserts.

There are so many recipes for chocolate pots on the net and in Thermomix forums. I suggest trying orange dark chocolate and a slug of grand marnier for an extra boost. The proportions will be equal measures of double cream, full cream milk and chocolate with an egg added for every 125g of chocolate. This will serve 6 small espresso cups. Dress them up with a sprig of rosemary.

If you infuse a sprig of rosemary in the steaming basket with heating the cream and milk it will have a subtle rosemary taste.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

  1. What a lovely idea to infuse rosemary in the internal basket while heating the milk and cream. This must really give a lovely taste to the hot chocolate. Thanks for sharing!

    • You are very welcome! I actually came across the idea on a Thermomix forum and then couldn’t find it again when I came to write mine up, so that I could give it credit- annoying.
