There are times that call for darkness; not the kind where monsters lurk or the corners of your mind where you do not tread, but the sultry darkness of chocolate. Times when the saccharine sweetness of white and the caramel child-friendly milk will not do. In those moments it is those squares of deep mahogany, all crimson robes and heady wine, that call to you. In mere seconds you find your fingers gently snapping off a shard, your tips already tinged with melted cocoa as you place it softly upon your tongue where it begins its enigmatic melody within your mouth, causing you to swoon and dream of dancing by firelight under an indigo moon.
Today, I indulged my 'dark side'.
prep time: 10mins.
cooking time: 18mins.
taste: 4/5. Vibrant orange and seductive dark chocolate - need I say more?
The fragrant bittersweet of the orange zest paired beautifully with the dusky bittersweetness of the chocolate, together they only amplified each other's flavours more.
would I make it again: Yes.
