This recipe is dedicated to all my chocoholics, I know you’re out there.

They say the way into a man’s heart is through his stomach. I say, the way to a woman’s heart, is through chocolate (or at least it will guide you in the right direction). Chocolate is flawless, you just can’t go wrong with whatever chocolate item you make.


These brownies were created in the name of boredom, I decided that the container of cocoa powder was bored as well, so a bowl and a whisk later….brownies! When I removed them from the oven, they smelled divine. My apartment air was chocolate bliss. As good as chocolate brownies are, I wanted these to taste like the chocolate bliss that filled the air, so I wanted to add a fresh component to beautify this chocolate classic, an orange to the rescue.

I called these orange infused brownies, because I literally infused them with orange. With the help of a handy toothpick, I punctured the top with small tiny holes, and poured in some sweet citrus…perfection!

The finishing touch was to drizzle on some chocolate glaze because, well….it’s chocolate glaze, yum.

When you bite into these, they’re reminiscent to a Terry’s Chocolate Orange in brownie form. They’re chewy, chocolatey, and kissed with fresh orange. Delicious.

What you need:


  • 1 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • juice of 1 ripe orange
  • orange zest

Chocolate Glaze:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13- inch baking pan.

Combine sugar,butter, and water in a large mixing bowl. Stir in eggs and vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; Stir into wet mixture. Stir in walnuts.

Spread evenly into greased baking pan.

Bake for 19-24 mins, or until toothpick inserted comes out slightly sticky.

Remove from oven, and let cool. Once brownie is cool, poke the top of the brownie with a toothpick, creating small holes, holes should be scattered evenly across the brownie. Pour the orange juice all over the top of brownie, letting the juice seep in through the holes. Let sit about 10- 15 mins.

Meanwhile, combine sugar, butter and cocoa in a small bowl. Add vanilla; gradually add milk until smooth or desired consistency.

Drizzle chocolate glaze over brownie, and cut into squares. Sprinkle with orange zest.
