Chocolate Orange Brownies

First off, I love Terry’s Chocolate Oranges SOOOOOOOO much! I literally will eat a whole one on Christmas every year. So when I saw recipes for combining them with brownies I was absolutely hooked and needed to try them!

The results are really nice. A moist rich orange flavoured brownie with pockets of the real chocolate oranges! What more could you ask for?
