Dark, fudgy chocolate brownies with chunks of Terry’s chocolate orange – a chocolate orange lover’s idea of heaven!
I love Christmas baking. These Terry’s chocolate orange brownies fall under the festive baking category because there is no other chocolate that screams “IT’S CHRISTMAS” to me more than a Terry’s chocolate orange.
Ok, I know there are available all year round now, but I still regard them as a Christmas sweet.
Finding one in the bottom of my stocking on Christmas morning was a major treat and usually ended up being breakfast.
My no Bake Terry’s chocolate orange traybake, chocolate orange cheesecake, chocolate orange Millionaire’s shortbread and these super decadent chocolate orange muffins have been extremely popular with you all, so it seems that I’m certainly not alone in my love of chocolate orange. I thought it would only be right to come up with a brand new recipe, so here is my Terry’s chocolate orange brownies!
My recipe uses both orange zest and orange extract to ramp up the chocolate orange flavour, but if you don’t have orange extract don’t worry – the brownies will still work fine without it. In this case you could just add 1 more teaspoon of vanilla extract.
If you want to you could simply use another Terry’s chocolate orange for the decoration instead of the mini segments – I love the popping candy ones you usually find in the shops this time of year but I’ll leave that decision up to you!
I really hope you enjoy these brownies – a few of these in a pretty festive box tied up with a fancy ribbon would make a lovely little Christmas gift for a loved one…just putting that idea out there!
