1/8 teaspoon grated orange zest

Pudding

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch

3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 pinch salt

9 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. In a small bowl, with a handheld mixer on medium-high speed, beat cream, sugar and orange zest until soft peaks form. Refrigerate while making pudding.
