Orange Chocolate Brownies

Lifestyle

For me, Orange Chocolate tastes like Christmas. This is mainly down to the number of Terry’s Chocolate Orange’s I devour every year. What’s a stocking without one, really? So, I’ve put together a short and easy recipe on how I achieved these delicious brownies (it takes roughly 1 hour inc. prep and cooking time, and can cut into 9 square brownies).

Ingredients:

  • 200g of butter, roughly chopped
  • 1 orange
  • 200g of dark cooking chocolate, broken up
  • 350g of caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 100g of plain flour
  • 50g of cocoa powder
  • Terry’s Chocolate Orange, broken up

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven 180C/gas mark 4. Line your square tin with baking paper.
  2. Grate the zest of the orange. Add the butter, zest of the orange and dark chocolate to a pan. Gently stir together on low heat until it’s melted together, then leave to cool.
  3. Add the caster sugar and eggs to a mixing bowl and whisk together until the mixture has doubled in size.
  4. Gently stir in the butter, zest and chocolate mixture in with the sugar and egg mixture.
  5. Sift over the flour and cocoa powder into the mixture.
  6. Then, add the Terry’s Chocolate Orange pieces into the mixture. Gently mix in the flour, cocoa and chocolate pieces.
  7. Pour the mixture into your lined tin and leave to cook for 40 minutes. You’ll know the brownie is ready when the middle is no longer runny. If you stick a knife through, it should come out clean. Then, leave to cool.

Enjoy!
