Happy New Year everyone!
2016 was quite the year. Some very good things happened for me personally (I started grad school, for one). But overall, it’s a year I’m quite glad to have behind us. Terrorist attacks across Europe, Aleppo, Brexit, Trump, Carrie Fisher (I met her and Gary, her adorable dog, at my vet a few years ago. She was so kind and friendly as we sat and chatted in the waiting room, just what you’d hope a celebrity would be like.)
So, I thought I’d start 2017 on a high note by sharing the recipe for the Chocolate Orange Brownies I made for the New Year’s party I attended. Enjoy!
- 14 tbsp butter (1 and 3/4 sticks butter)
- 3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (approx. 5 oz)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
- pinch salt
- zest of 1/2 navel orange*
