3 3/4 lbs. milk chocolate, chopped
1 cup Cointreau concentrate 60% or Cointreau Liqueur

Heat the cream together with the corn syrup and the butter. Whip the egg yolks and sugar and quickly add to the warm cream. Continue to heat mixture to approximately 194°F.

Add orange juice and boil for a short time. Fold in the chocolate and then the liqueur. Leave the mixture to cool. Quickly smooth out the ganache in a mixer with paddle attachment.
