What You'll Need
  • 130 grams Dark chocolate ( I used 60% dark chocolate)

  • Cocoa powder, for coating
  1. Roughly chop the dark chocolate and place it in a saucepan.
  2. Melt the chocolate using the method of double boiler. Make sure you stir the chocolate every now and then.
  3. Once the chocolate has melted by 90%, in a separate bowl heat the cream on medium heat for a minute.

Recipe is missing a bunch of steps

Recipe is mixing the steps where you mix the chocolate and the cream, add the orange zest, then the liqueur. The ganache may seize up when the liquor goes in, keep stirring and it should smooth out.
