If you eat this the day that it's made it will have the consistency of pudding. If you wait until the next day it will be like a thick ganache. I've combined three or four different Pots de Crème recipes to come up with this "ultimate" version. If you don't care for orange flavoring, you could use an equal amount of vanilla. I might try using peppermint extract sometime or dissolve a little instant coffee in the chocolate/cream mixture for mocha flavor.
