Brownies With a Secret Local Ingredient

Brownies With a Secret Local Ingredient

Holiday baking season may be over but thankfully, Valentine's Day means baking infused with copious amounts of chocolate. 

While brownies are a classic, chocolate packed favorite, we have an easy recipe made with a local ingredient that takes normal fudgy brownies and intensifies them with a citrus twist. 

Chocolate Orange Brownies

All you need to make this delicious dessert are your staple brownie ingredients (sugar, vanilla eggs, baking powder, cocoa powder, salt, flour) or just a box mix if you want to save time like us. However, skip the canola oil. 

Head down to Boone Olive Oil Co.  located at 20 S. 9th St., pick up a bottle of their Blood Orange Fused Olive Oil and use it to replace the oil in your recipe.

If you've ever had one of those chocolate oranges that you slam on the table to open around Christmas, you will get a sense of familiarity from the smell of the mix alone. Pop em' in the oven and let it do its thing. 

After they cool, garnish with fresh orange peel and/ or powered sugar.

*Don't worry, we won't judge. The testers we made were gone in less than 24 hours between your two test chefs
