I absolutely love those little chocolate oranges and look forward to them each Christmas season.
Last week I had to bring a dessert to a little dinner we had with friends and I decided to experiment with the chocolate and orange combo.
These little brownies are seriously a match made in chocolate heaven. I dare say, they rank right up there, with any chocolate and peanut butter combo.
So for all those chocolate orange lovers, you will definitely have to give these a try.

If you don’t love orange extract you could easily use a different flavor, such as:
You could easily use any extract, and make any flavor of brownie as you’d like. I personally love the chocolate orange for the Christmas holiday, but you could switch the flavor depending on the season.
could i use essential oils instead of extract?
You most definitely could use essential oils, instead of flavored extracts. I would do a few drops at a time, and taste test, according to preference, depending on how strong you like your orange.
I personally prefer using extracts, and they are cheaper, but both would work.
