Till I was in my late teens, chocolate meant just chocolate. No added flavour (except mint thanks to major love for After Eight). I was ok with textures in chocolate, like nuts, raisins, rice puffs (Crackle being my favourite!), but not with flavours.
As I grew older I started trying more dark chocolate and then through some bars of fancy Lindt, also experimented with flavoured chocolate. While some combos are not my scene, I definitely love chocolate and orange as a pair. I’m not a fan of sweet orange filling in chocolate, but I love a zesty orange background flavour mixed in to the chocolate. The darker the chocolate the better, in this case. These brownies are inspired by this decadent flavour combo and are downright irresistible!
