Roz’s Chocolate Orange

Sometimes simplicity is the best recipe, taking the traditional marriage of flavours; orange and chocolate these are a no fuss, simple and fast treat to wipe up. However, they look and taste quiet impressive. The texture of the cold hard chocolate matches perfectly with the creamy & light mousse inside. If your like myself and you fancy a bit more orange bite, grate some orange zest through your melted chocolate. Enjoys these little gems, and remember its not Terry’s chocolate orange…..
