Happy Valentine's Day to all of my faithful readers! Have you ever had a Chocolate Orange? You know, the candy? So, I've only had it twice, but YUM! Here's what I whipped up for my family for a Valentine's dessert. This would be great to serve dinner guests!
Chocolate Orange Mousse
1 bag semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup whole milk
Zest of 2 clementines plus juice of 1/2 clementine (to equal 1Tbsp of zest/juice)
1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
Melt chocolate chips and milk in a warm double boiler. Stir frequently until chocolate is completely melted. Cool completely, then completely stir the zest/juice in. Whip up the cream until stiff peaks form. Set aside about 1/2 cup cream. Fold the cream into the chocolate mixture until completely blended. Put into dessert dish(es) and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Serve with a small dollop of the reserved whipped cream.
