Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding

Warning: Sugar and Cocoa alert.
Children may go crazy after eating this dish.

This is a good winter pudding. But only for special occasions. It contain lots of sugar and cocoa which may trigger hyperactivity in some people.
I have used orange as garnish. The citrus cuts through the sweet sticky chocolate.
Be aware that the pudding may bubble over in the oven, creating a mess. Place the oven dish on a tray to stop this.
