Festive Chocolate Orange Ganache Pots (vegan & gluten free)

This dessert is super easy but packs a flavour punch. And does anything say Christmas more than chocolate and orange?

Foe me it conjures up lovely memories of eating whole chocolate oranges on Christmas day. I had one every year when I was little – I can still remember the excitement and taste of it now.

These lovely ganache pots are creamy, deeply chocolatey with a lovely orange flavour. They’re quick to make and perfect for making ahead for dinner parties etc

I really hope you enjoy, much love Niki xxx

I'd love to know if you made this recipe.

    Have not tried this yet, but it looks like something I could probably manage! I am definitely a true chocolate lover so I will get around to making it one of these days. Photos look great. Thanks for the recipe and Happy Holidays.
