  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C
  2. Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in a medium bowl with the butter. Melt them very cairfuly in the microwave- set the microwave to its lowest setting and zap for no more than a minute at a time, stirring between zaps.
  3. Meanwhile, zest the orange, juice it and scoop the remaining flesh out.
  4. Once the chocolate and butter is thoroughly melted, add the egg and stir thoroughly, this should give the mix a goopy consistency.
