You can do this the hard way or the easy way.
The hard way is to make the make a bowl of chocolate fudge pudding, make a pan of brownies, and make some *fresh orange peel slivers, then follow the directions below to create the orange sauce for your chocolate dessert.
The easy way is to buy the following ingredients, then follow the recipe to create the orange sauce.
A bottle of light corn syrup.If you have on dark corn syrup on hand, then use it. It will make the sauce a darker color but the taste of the sauce will not be changed that much. The lighter corn syrup creates a light colored orange sauce which makes a lovely contrast to the chocolate when the dessert is served in a dessert glass or a glass bowl.Butter or margarine
Frozen orange juice concentrate
A 4 pack of chocolate fudge pudding. Each individual cup of pudding is 3.5 oz.
A container of brownie bites from you local grocery store or 3 to 4 brownies
A can of whipped cream
1/2 cup white sugar 1/3 cup light corn syrup 1/3 cup butter or margarine 1/2 cup thawed frozen orange concentrate
Put the orange sauce ingredients into a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring often. Set aside and let the sauce cool, then pour the sauce into a jar or bowl and leave in the refrigerator until time to put the dessert together.
Fresh Orange Peel Slivers
Since I didn't have a orange peel on hand, I made fresh orange peel slivers. Wash the oranges in warm water and dry. Use your potato peeler to peel strips (or pieces) off the orange. Your orange peel for this dessert can have a bit of the white of the orange on it. The white of the orange is stronger and a bit bitter, but for this recipe I went with the slightly bitter taste. But, feel free to only take the top orange layer of the peel if you choose or buy the orange peel at your local store.
Once you have your slices or pieces of orange peel, the cut them into very thin strips, then cut across the thin strips to create small pieces of thin orange peel. These will be used as decoration as well as for taste. Let the orange slivers dry a bit on the cutting board or on a piece of waxed paper, then store them in a small container and set aside until you put the dessert together.
Putting it Together
1. Take the chocolate fudge pudding out of the 4 cups and put into a bowl.
2. Cut 12 to 14 of the brownie bites (which are about 1 inch square) into, then cut into again, and again until that one brownie bite is cut into 8 small squares. Put the brownie bite pieces (or the brownie pieces you have cut into small pieces) into the pudding and stir until all the brownie pieces are well covered with chocolate pudding.
3. Put 2 to 3 heaping tablespoons into a glass or glass bowl. You want to fill the serving glass to about 1/2 inch from the top of the glass or bowl. This isn't really rocket science so it doesn't matter if you stop at 1/2 inch or 1 inch from the top of the serving dish. It won't make a difference in the taste of this dessert.
4. Spoon 3 to 4 tablespoons of the orange sauce over the chocolate pudding and pieces. Put the glasses or bowls into the refrigerator until your luncheon or dinner is finished, then add the whipped cream and orange peel slivers just before serving.
5. Squirt whipped cream into a pyramid shape over the orange sauce and pudding, then delicately sprinkle a few of the orange peel slivers over the whipped cream.
