Chocolate Orange Brownies

Chocolate Orange Brownies

I love a chocolate brownie any day of the week, but add some orange to that chocolate and it’s next level! These Chocolate Orange Brownies are as gooey and fudgey as you would want from a brownie. Then I’ve added orange extract and Terry’s Chocolate Orange pieces – both chopped up inside and segments on top.

These Chocolate Orange Brownies are gooey and delicious! The chocolate orange on top is extra yummy, I do love when chocolate is baked just a little bit, it almost makes it taste better!! They are a chocolate orange dream, and so easy to make too!

How to make Chocolate Orange Brownies…

I started by melting the dark chocolate and butter together in a pan on a low heat. I let it cool for 5 minutes.

In a bowl I whisked together the eggs, dark brown sugar and orange extract. I added the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture, whisking constantly as I poured it in. Then I added the plain flour and baking powder.

I stirred in the chopped chocolate orange segments then I poured the batter into a lined traybake tin. I baked the brownies for 25 minutes, then I placed some chocolate orange segments that I had frozen on top and baked for another 5 minutes.

Do you have to use dark brown sugar for the Chocolate Orange Brownies?

No, you can also use light brown sugar or caster sugar. I do recommend using either light or dark brown sugar if you can as it adds extra fudgeyness to the brownies!

What can you use instead of orange extract?

I get my orange extract either from Amazon (Nielsen Massey is my favourite brand) or from a supermarket baking section like Tesco or Waitrose. If you can’t get hold of it, you can stir the zest of one orange into these brownies for that extra orange hit.

Notes

If you would like to use a 8" or 9" square tin instead, reduce the recipe by one third. So you will need:
  • 235g Dark chocolate
  • 165g Butter
  • 165g Dark brown sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3/4 tsp Orange extract
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 80g Plain flour
  • 2/3 of a Terry's Chocolate Orange
They will also need less time to bake, depending on your oven, I'd suggest 20-25 minutes.

  1. Man alive Kat… these brownies look so good, I am drooling, Unlike you, I am a massive marmalade fan and can just imagine the sharp bitterness of the orange marmalade with a squidgey chocolate brownie. YUM! Inspired bake!

    1. Thanks so much for letting me know how much you liked them Jen! I’m so pleased to hear this 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    These are cooling off now, my son who is the chocoholic is really looking forward to trying later. The smell was just divine when they were taken out of the oven. Unfortunately I won’t be able to try for myself as am gf now but already thinking of adapting the recipe. Hoping as there isn’t too much flour in the bake it should turn out fine.
    They have just been cut and my son’s face was a picture, a definite winner.
    A keeper for sure😉

    1. I’m so happy your son enjoyed the brownies Sandra!! Please let me know if you make them gf, I’ve not tried it myself but as you say it should be fine as it’s not much flour.

  3. 5 stars
    These brownies are amazing! Absolutely loved them and so did my boyfriend!😋 I’ll be making them again for sure, thank you for the recipe☺️

  4. 5 stars
    Excellent and easy recipe to use. Brownies are delicious. Unfortunately I had no plain flour, but had already started the process so I used SR flour. Took a bit longer to cook, and not just as gooey, but tastes super yummy. I used all the left over chocolate from Christmas and melted it all down instead of dark chocolate. Will defo use this recipe again.

    1. I’m so pleased to hear you enjoyed the brownies despite the different flour! Great idea for using up Christmas chocolate 🙂
