Print Recipe


  • 1 orange
  • 4 cups 960ml whole milk
  • 12 oz 340gr high quality semi-sweet chocolate
  • 4 oz 115ml Grand Marnier (orange liquor)
  • Small pinch of salt
  • ½ cup 120ml heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • Zest the whole orange with a microplane. Cut the orange in half and juice it. You should get at least 2 teaspoons of zest and 3 tablespoons of juice. Set aside.
  • In a medium pot, simmer the milk and orange zest over medium high heat for about 5 minutes. Stir in the chocolate until it’s melted. Remove from heat and add a small pinch of salt (it sharpens the flavor nicely) and orange liquor.
  • While the milk is simmering, whip the heavy cream using an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add the sugar and 3 tablespoons of orange juice and continue to whip until hard peaks form.
  • Divide the hot chocolate into 4 cups and top with orange whipped cream. If desired, sprinkle some orange zest and chocolate curls*. Enjoy!


To make the chocolate curls, I used the vegetable peeler.
