Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the half-and-half with the arrowroot, whisking until smooth.
  2. Place the remaining 1/2 cup of half-and-half in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. When the half-and-half begins to bubble around the edges, whisk in the sugar. Whisk in the arrowroot mixture until the half-and-half thickens slightly, usually less than a minute.
  3. Remove from the heat and quickly whisk in the chocolate until smooth.
  4. Pour into cups, top both with a pinch of orange zest, and serve immediately.
