Orange Chocolate Custard Tartlets

Have you ever made something that was so good that you couldn't get it off your mind?
I made the Lemon Coconut Tarts yesterday and they were soo good that I was gitty with possibility for variations. My mind just kept going and going...So Last night I finally gave in to Orange Chocolate Custard Tartlets.
Oh my gosssssshhhhh. more than I could have ever hoped for. The bright orange essence cuts through the heaviness of the chocolate. The smooth velvety texture of a custard gives your mouth the pleasure of chocolate pudding you can eat with your hands...I love cooking! This is why.
