  1. In a heatproof bowl, set over a saucepan of hot, not boiling, water, melt chocolate and 1/4 cup of the whipping cream; stir until smooth. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. In a chilled bowl, combine remaining whipping cream, confectioners' sugar, vanilla and orange zest. Whip until soft peaks form. Fold one-quarter in to chocolate mixture. Fold in remaining whipped cream just until blended. Chill until set, for about 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours.
