Makes 12-16 squares
200g butter, softened
300g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
8-10 Orange Zest Spice Drops®
180-200g caster sugar
100g plain flour
50g cocoa powder
the juice of 1 medium orange
Preheat the oven to 180C and line a 24x20cm brownie tin with baking parchment.
Put the butter, dark chocolate and Orange Zest Spice Drops® in a non-stick saucepan and very gently melt over a low heat, stirring every now and then, until smooth – take care not to overheat it. Leave to cool down.
Whisk the eggs and sugar together with an electric whisk until the mixture is pale, frothy and leaves a trail when the beaters are lifted.
Gently stir in the cooled chocolate mixture and the orange juice and continue to whisk. Sift over the flour and cocoa, stir in.
Pour into the lined tin and bake for 30-35 minutes. Cool in the tin, then cut into squares.
