Chocolate Orange Brownies (V/GF)

If you haven’t tried orange and chocolate together before, then you need to start with these Chocolate Orange Brownies!

They really show just how good chocolate and orange are together. Chocolate is already so delicious on it’s own, but when you throw some fresh orange zest in the mix, you’ve got yourself a real treat! The bright burst of orange flavor is so pleasant in these rich, dark chocolate brownies.

They’re super moist, chewy, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Makes my mouth water just thinking about them!
