    Chocolate Puddings with Orange Whipped Cream

    I was very pleased, with my menu for dinner on Friday night
    This Chocolate Pudding is another keeper,
    So so simple, and so so rich
    Unfortunately, as it was late in the night,  when I served the puddings
    I forgot to take a photo with the cream on top
    so you will have to use your imagination
    We all know Chocolate and Orange - perfect match
    This recipe stretched out to feed 8 people
    It is so rich you don't need a large serving

            1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips (do not exceed 61% cacao)
            or semisweet chocolate chips
            2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
            1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

    and 1/4 teaspoon salt in medium saucepan to blend.
