Chocolate Orange Pots with Rosemary Sea Salt

Share

Stop what you’re doing! You need these chocolate orange pots with rosemary sea salt and olive oil in your life. These seriously mouth-watering, indulgent desserts only contain a few ingredients, so they are super simple to make and are a crowd-pleaser every time.

Extra-virgin olive oil, a staple of the Mediterranean diet, is a rich source of antioxidants and monounsaturated fats, both of which are thought to protect cardiovascular health. It comes with many flavour profiles: young, fresh oil tends to be peppery, grassy and greener in colour; a year or older will be milder, paler and sweeter. A good quality extra-virgin oil will have a rounded depth of flavour, with slight bitter taste – a perfect match for the sweet and complex flavours of the equally bitter cacao.

You will need:

  • double cream 200ml
  • whole milk 40ml
  • 70% dark chocolate 200g, chopped
  • extra-virgin olive oil 30ml, plus extra to serve
  • orange 1
  • brown sugar 50g
  • a few sprigs of rosemary, finely grated
  • sea salt to serve

 

Method

STEP 1

Pour the cream into a pan with the milk and heat on low.

STEP 2

Once the cream is simmering, pour over the chocolate. Leave for a minute, then stir, carefully combining. Now stir in the olive oil, be careful not to over mix or you will split the mixture.

STEP 3

Divide into 4 small glasses or ramekins and leave to set at room temp.

STEP 4

Meanwhile, finely grate the rosemary and add to the sea salt mixture until well-combined.

STEP 4

Cut orange in half horizontally. Squeeze half into a small pan, add 50ml water and brown sugar.

STEP 5

Cut the remaining half into small chunks and add to pan, peel-side down. Bring to a simmer on a low heat. Baste the oranges every 2 minutes or so. After 10-15 minutes, or when the liquid has reduced to a syrup, remove from the heat.

STEP 6

Serve the chocolate pots topped with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, a pinch of rosemary sea salt and the caramelised oranges.
