The Food Post | Orange Chocolate Chip Brownies

There's nothing I like more than a Terry's Chocolate Orange. I do love me some orange flavoured chocolate. Yum Yum... *sits for a couple of minutes wishing I had one right now*. So when I was deciding what to bake this weekend I decided to add a little twist on the traditional chocolate brownies. Oh, and by the way... My brownies do NOT contain nuts. I hate nuts. I do always ask in a restaurant if their brownies have full nuts in them - otherwise I will NOT order them.

Anyway, back to the recipe. I got the base of this recipe from a Mary Berry book and then just adapted some bits and piece. I hope you like - if you give it a go make sure you tweet me and let me know how they went! 


350g chocolate
225g butter

3 large eggs
225g caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extrat
2 oranges
75g self raising flour
200g chocolate chips

1. Preheat your oven to 190 dgrees, or Gas Mark 5. Grease your baking tins.

2. Break up the chocolate into pieces and melt with the butter over a pan of hot water, stirring so you ensure it doesn't turn
TIP: Make sure the butter is room temperature and broken up into pieces to ensure quicker melting time

3. While you're waiting for this to cool, juice 2 oranges into a bowl.
4. Beat together your eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and orange juice. 
5. Gradually beat in the chocolate mixture until it's fully combined. 
6. Fold in the flour, and chocolate chips. 
7. Pour the mixture into your prepared tins and put in the oven for 40-45 minutes.
TIP: Make sure it's fully cooked by using a poker/knife and sliding this into the middle of your bake. If it comes out clean it's cooked.
8. Allow to cool, and then cut into brownie sections.

Voila! I didn't actually have a square tin (I'm on it...) so mine were put in round cake tins which will explain their shape. However, still taste good and I was suddenly very popular in my house...
