Cooking Instructions: In a blender, combine the chocolate chips, brown sugar, cocoa powder and orange zest. Blend until finely chopped. Pour in the hot coffee and blend until the mixture is smooth and the chocolate is melted. Add the half and half and continue blending until the mixture is very frothy. Pour into 4 heated cups. In a small bowl with an electric mixer, beat together the whipping cream and orange juice or liqueur until stiff.
