6 egg yolks
6 ounces 60 percent (at least) dark chocolate chips or shaved bar
3 tablespoons sugar
2 cups heavy cream
Combine yolks, chocolate and sugar in blender jar and pulse a few times. Heat cream to simmering, pour over top of chocolate mixture and blend immediately on high for 1 to 2 minutes, until chocolate has melted. Pour into individual serving dishes or one large dish and cover with plastic wrap placed directly on surface of custard. This will prevent a skin from forming on top. Chill at least one hour in refrigerator.
Optional: Add about 1 teaspoon grated orange zest and 1/4 cup orange juice to blender before adding hot cream. Sprinkle dash of sea salt on top before covering.
