How to make it

  • Using a 2 cup glass measuring cup, pour in the cream add the chocolate.
  • Microwave on high for 1 minute.
  • Remove cup and stir.
  • Add the fresh zest to the chocolate mixture and stir.
  • Place back in microwave and heat for one more minute.
  • Remove cup and stir well until the chocolate is dark and smooth.
  • Using a fine strainer, strain chocolate to remove the zest.
  • Let the mixture now cool to use in any of your recipes.
  • I poured this over a cooled pan of brownies that came out of a box and put the brownies into the refrigerator until the chocolate became solid.
  • *You can let this firm up and roll balls out of it, to roll in cocoa powder or chopped nuts. Its a truffle center, afterall!
  • Try filling prepared tart shells and add a dollop of fresh whipped cream with some fresh zest over the top for an wonderful dessert.
