Chocolate Orange Pots

These delights are just the thing to serve after a Christmas dinner, when there’s just a tiny bit of room for something sweet. They are luxurious, rich and full of chocolate orange delishment! So much so that you only need an elf sized portion.

Serve them in tiny glasses for aesthetic purposes. These ones were given to me by my Nan who always loved a Bailey’s at Christmas. I’ll never part with them. I love traditions especially at Christmas time. Do you bring out something special and nostalgic that evokes treasured memories? Merry Christmas everyone x

Serves 4


100g dark chocolate – snapped into squares

150ml double cream

3 tablespoons orange juice

Finely grated zest of half an orange


Heat the cream in a pan over a low heat until it starts to gently bubble.

Add your snapped up chocolate and stir until melted and fully combined.

Add your orange juice and keep stirring. Whisk a little for a lovely smooth consistency and pour into your dishes.

Allow to set in the fridge for 2-3 hours or overnight.

When ready to serve add a little more finely grated orange zest and devour.
