As the weather is getting hotter and more humid, I made this quick and easy refreshing chocolate orange jelly from the leftover oranges in my refrigerator. The top layer of chocolate is made with milk and cocoa powder. As usual I like to use Valrhona cocoa powder to give a chocolatey aroma layer top (you can use Hershey’s too). This is a perfect match with the citrusy orange layer. I used a round silicone mould that I bought from Daiso to make this jelly and it came out beautifully with the wavy pattern on top making it look like a pretty cake.
