I needed a rich pudding to go over cupcakes for my friend's birthday. They needed to be more or less low-carb; preferably more than less. *grins*
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1⁄4 teaspoon guar gum
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1⁄2 teaspoon orange zest
- 1 cup bittersweet chocolate (chopped small)
- Slowly heat cream over medium-low heat. When it starts to warm, it will get a thinner consistency. Add guar gum, vanilla, and orange zest when it gets to room temperature. Mix and continue to heat. Do not let it boil and stir constantly.
- Chop chocolate and put it into a bowl. When cream is steaming and just starting to simmer, remove from heat and pour over the chocolate. Let sit for half a minute to melt the chocolate and then stir.
- Mix until all the chocolate is melted and you have a smooth consistency. Let cool. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
