Orange Chocolate Sauce

Serve this rich chocolate sauce with poached fruit, ice cream, crêpes or freshly baked profiteroles. Or, for a thoughtful gift, spoon the sauce into a small glass jar and adorn with a festive ribbon. Attach a label with instructions to keep it chilled, and include a best-before date.
