Ingredients and substitutions

I like to use chopped dark chocolate when making this pudding, but you can substitute any type of chocolate you prefer. Or use chocolate chips to save the step of chopping the chocolate.

Fresh orange juice works best when making this pudding. And fresh orange zest gives this pudding an extra boost of citrusy flavor. You can omit the zest if necessary, but definitely include it if possible because it contributes to the intense orange chocolate flavor of this pudding.

Vanilla extract enhances the other flavors in this chocolate orange pudding. I recommend using pure vanilla extract as opposed to artificial vanilla flavoring if possible.

How to make it

Add the chopped dark chocolate to a pan on the stove set to low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until the chocolate has melted, then immediately remove the pan from the heat.
