Chocolate-Orange Latte Cotto

This adaptation of panna cotta (an Italian dessert normally made with cream or a mix of milk and cream) is silky-smooth and satisfying. When you like, run a steel spatula across the edges of the dessert and invert it onto a serving plate. Timing alert: This dessert has to relax for not less than 4 hours.
