Orange Hot Chocolate with Cocoa Cream

As many of you know,  the flavor combination of Orange and Chocolate is very close to the top of my "Most Scrumptious Food" list.  This is very easy to make! and the Cocoa Whipped Cream makes it even more decadent.

Hot Chocolate
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup cocoa powder
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon orange rind
4 cups milk (I used whole milk)
Cocoa Cream
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Begin by making a chocolate syrup - in a medium saucepan, combine the granulated sugar, water cocoa powder & salt - stir.  Place on heat & bring it to boil (stirring all the time!!).  Remove from the heat, stir in the orange rind first, then slowly stir in the milk (whisking slowly all the time) - return to heat until just before it boils (do NOT bring to full boil when the milk has been added).
With an electric mixer - whip the cream, cocoa powder & powdered sugar until stiff peaks have formed (see picture below on the right).

Pour the hot chocolate into a cup or mug, spoon a good sized dollop of Cocoa Cream on top, serve immediately & ENJOY!!
