We find a great combination of flavors are orange and chocolate and this pie will give you plenty of both.
Keebler® Ready Crust® Chocolate Pie Crust
16 ounces of milk
2 tablespoons orange zest (approximately 2 Sunburst Oranges)
12 to 16 orange segments (yes, the same oranges)
13 ounces of 65% chocolate, chopped into 1/4-inch chunks or smaller
5 tablespoons corn syrup
A pinch of Redmond Real Salt
4 ounces mascarpone cheese
6 ounces heavy cream
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
After zesting the Sunburst Oranges, peel and reserve the orange segments. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine milk and orange zest. Make sure you don’t get any of the white orange pith.
Bring the milk and zest just to a boil, then turn off the heat and allow it to steep for at least 20 minutes before straining. This will deliver the best and brightest orange flavor. Pour the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the zest, and return the infused milk to a clean, medium-sized saucepan. Combine chopped chocolate, salt, and corn syrup in a large bowl. Bring milk just to a boil, then pour milk over the chocolate mixture and allow it to sit for 2 minutes. Then, stir milk and chocolate mixture until all of the chocolate is melted. Pour mixture back into the saucepan over low heat, and stir continuously for approximately 8 minutes, taking care to prevent the mixture from burning on the bottom of the pan. The mixture will thicken and begin to bubble. Continue stirring until it has thickened to the consistency of pudding. Remove from heat and pour the filling into the pie shell. Press plastic wrap directly on the surface of the filling (not over the crust), and chill for at least 4 hours (overnight is ideal).
To serve: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the cream and confectioner's together until the cream has thickened but does not yet hold soft peaks. Add the mascarpone and whip until the mixture holds medium peaks. Fill the pie shell. Top pie with the whipped mixture and decorate with Sunburst Orange segments. Serve immediately.
