    Makes: 16 

    • 112 g unsweetened chocolate
    • 115 g butter
    • 165 g packed brown sugar
    • 150 g white sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 4 tablespoons brandy-based orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier(R))

    • 1 teaspoon orange zest
    • 95 g all-purpose flour
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
    • 85 g semisweet chocolate chips

    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8 inch square baking pan.
    2. Over low heat, melt chocolate and butter in a medium saucepan. Stir until smooth. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
    3. In a large bowl, beat sugars and eggs until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes with electric mixer). Add melted chocolate, 3 tablespoons of the Grand Marnier, vanilla and the orange peel, mixing until well blended. Mix in the flour, salt and chocolate chips (on low speed if using an electric mixer).
    4. Pour batter into prepared pan. Smooth the top. Bake for 30-35 until sides look done and top feels firm. Inserting a toothpick 2 inches from center should come out clean; however, center will jiggle and look undercooked.
    5. Remove from oven and brush top with the remaining 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier. Cover pan with foil or plastic and cool completely. Cut into 2 inch squares. Store covered at room temperature or they may be frozen. Defrost covered at room temperature.

    DELICIOUS! This is a very wet, soft brownie, with the perfect amount of Grand Marnier. I would recommend cutting them into 1-inch squares because they're so rich. HINT: pour the batter into the pan, and then sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the batter. (Mine sunk to the bottom and melted.)  -  03 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious recipe! I love orange and chocolate together and this does the trick. A tip for those who mention their chips sank to the bottom: toss the chips in a bit of flour before adding them to whatever you're baking, and they won't sink  -  18 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are GRAND (!) and have become a regular item for company and gift-giving. Note: A small piece goes a long way. I found mini chocolate chips work best; standard size sink to the bottom. I believe most people will enjoy these brownies.  -  14 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
