  • In a saucepan, pour the heavy double cream and milk together and heat gently. Bring to simmer.
  • Add the chopped dark chocolate into a bowl and, when the cream simmers, pour it over the dark chocolate. Allow the mixture to sit for 1 minute so the chocolate can melt, then stir to combine.
  • Next, stir in the extra-virgin olive oil (do not overmix).
  • Divide the mixture into 4 small serving glasses/pots/ramekins and leave to set at room temperature.
  • Cut the clementine/orange into the half. Squeeze one half of the clementine/orange into a pan, add the brown sugar and water; combine.
  • Cut the remaining half into small chunks and apply them in the pan.
  • Over a medium-low heat, bring to a simmer, stirring frequently. When the liquid has reduced in half (after 10-15 minutes), remove from the heat.
  • Serve the olive oil dark chocolate pots topped with a little pinch of salt, a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, and some caramelized clementine/oranges.
