Chocolate Orange Brownies






























I have been meaning to post these fudgey brownies for a while now. They are so very easy and so very quick. This is the perfect recipe for a chocolate fix and when I tell you I got the recipe from Choclette over at the Chocolate Log Blog, you will know just how good they are. That girl really does know her chocolate. If you still need a fix after reading this recipe, you should go over there. You won't be disappointed!
















Chocolate Orange Brownies


100g/1 stick/½ cup butter
100g bar of orange flavoured dark chocolate (I used Lindt's Excellence Orange Intense, which has slivers of almonds in it)
2 large eggs
¾ cup brown sugar
2⁄3 cup plain flour
1 tsp cinnamon
a pinch of salt

Heat oven to 180c/350f/Gas Mark 4.

Melt the chocolate, butter and sugar in a bain marie.

Take of the heat and allow to cool a little, then beat in 2 eggs.

Stir in the flour, cinnamon and salt.

Pour into a lined brownie pan and bake for 12 minutes.

Allow to cool in pan before slicing up and serving.

See! I told you they were easy. How can you resist? I am sure you have all the ingredients in your larder. Go on, have a go, even if you don't have orange flavoured chocolate. You will love them and they will be ready in a flash.

Round of applause for Choclette please!

  2. Hey Val, you could use those to make these brownies too. Mind you it would be hard not to eat the chocolate orange first. They are yummy :)
