I flavour these little puddings with a bit of orange zest that’s strained out at the end. The result is a very rich and smooth custard. Place a slice of candied orange in each little cup just before serving. Dip the orange in the pudding as you’re eating – the crunch of the sugar, the bittersweetness of the orange, the depth of the chocolate – it all reminds me of my time in Italy.

    4 oz. (113g) high quality semi-sweet chocolate (approx 60% cacao)
