Orange Chocolate Brownies
- Prep: 15 minutes
- Bake: 25 minutes
- Makes: 16 servings
- ½ cup Blood Orange Olive Oil
- 4 ounces dark chocolate (at least 70% cacao)
- 2 large eggs
- ¾ cup sugar
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tsps. vanilla extract
- 1 cup walnuts, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8” square baking pan.
Break up the chocolate in small pieces into an ovenproof bowl or pan and set it into the oven to melt. When it is completely soft, combine it with the olive oil, beating with a fork to mix thoroughly. Let cool.
Beat the eggs, until they are thick and foamy, then beat in the sugar, about ¼ cup at a time. When the sugar is thoroughly incorporated and the chocolate mixture has cooled down, combine the two, stirring them together with a spatula or wooden spoon. Do not beat.
Using a rubber spatula, stir in the flour, vanilla, and walnuts. Spread the mixture in the prepared pan and transfer to the preheated oven. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until the edges start to pull away from the pan. Remove from the oven and set on a wire rack to cool completely before cutting into squares.
