5 mins to prep

10 mins to cook

  1. Step 1

    Roughly chop the chocolate and place in a heat proof bowl over a pot of bowling water to melt, stirring continuously.

  2. Step 2

    Once melted, remove from heat and add oil, salt and sugar, stirring until combined and until the sugar has dissolved. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Whisk the plant-based cream until it forms stiff peaks, then fold through the cool chocolate mixture.

  4. Step 4

    Pour the mixture into jars and place in the fridge to set for about four hours. (But in saying that, taste it! If you’re happy with the flavour and texture straight away, you can probably get away with serving them immediately.)

  5. Step 5

    Top with segments of fresh blood orange, dried blood orange slice, and fresh mint.
