So I know we are all trying to get healthier, eat better and BE better, but I had to share the recipe! You can’t completely deprive yourself of delicious treats, right? And these brownies are amazing! If you love Terry’s Chocolate Oranges, you will absolutely love these, too.
1 Box of Fudge Brownie Mix
Zest of 1 orange, divided (a little bigger than a baseball)
1/4 c oil
1/2 C half and half
2 T Cocoa
1/2 C Butter
1 t Vanilla
3 1/2 C Powdered Sugar
To make the brownies, mix the contents of the box with oil, half and half and eggs. (You can also make them according to the box directions, these are just a little less fatty). Mix with a whisk until it’s combined well. Add 1 tsp of packed zest and about 3 drops of orange oil. Pour into a greased pan and cook according to the package directions. Don’t over bake.
Melt butter in a saucepan. Add cocoa and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let it cool for a few minutes. Add the powdered sugar. It will be a little runny! Then, add the rest of the zest, and a couple drops of orange oil. You can frost your brownies with the warm frosting, or put the frosting in the fridge for an hour and it will thicken to the consistent of butter cream frosting.
I may or may not have eaten the entire pan…
