    You could call this Chocolate Orange Cream, Its Very Rich, Very Delicious and Very Easy to Make.

    Prep Time :- 10 mins

    Cooking time :- 5-10 mins

    Serves 12

    175g  Chocolate, Broken Into Pieces.

    50g    Butter.

    6 Eggs, Separated.

    3 tablespoons of Orange Curacao, Grand Marnier or Cointreau.

    1.  Slowly melt the Chocolate and Butter in a heat proof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, stirring till mixed and melted.

    2.  Remove from the heat and beat in the egg yolks one by one, along with the chosen spirit flavouring.

    3.  When cold, fold in one third of the beaten egg whites, then whisk up the remaining egg whites again before folding in the balance.

    4.  Pour into 12 ramekins or small teacups and Chill Well.   Top with Cream, Orange Rind and Chocolate Swirls.

    ......Yes and a possibly dangerous too because you are not cooking the eggs at all.

    Pots d Crème would be better as the custard is cooked in a water bath.

    Just sayin
