If you want even better brownies, add Terry’s Chocolate Orange segments to them! 🍊
These Terry’s Chocolate Orange Brownies have a double chocolate orange hit – with segments of Terry’s inside the brownies as well as on top…. and, uh… I might’ve added a little splash of Cointreau to them too.
*There are very few bakeries and cafes that are the exception to this rule.
To make these easy Terry’s Chocolate Orange Brownies, I adapted my favourite recipe for homemade brownies. Fudgy, gooey and gorgeous every time, they’re so easy to make! You can have these whipped up and be digging in inside of an hour. 😍
This recipe has been my main Brownie squeeze for the past couple of years…. and people go CRAZY for these brownies – trust me! The only downside (if you can call it a downside) with them is that they’re SO intensely chocolatey that it’s almost too much.
You’ll need butter, chocolate, sugar, eggs and ground almonds for this recipe for Terry’s Chocolate Orange Brownies recipe :), plus a brownie pan 15inch by 11inch or similar – this is the one that I used below. Lining the inside with parchment paper makes it really easy to get the brownies out.
- You overbake the brownies and end up with cake
- You underbake the brownies and they’re goo
To prevent #1 from happening, simply follow the baking time and keep a close eye on the brownies, especially if your oven runs hot. Bake them on the middle shelf of the oven and watch for these signs that they’re done – browned edges that are pulling slightly away from the tin, and a firm top. The inside should still be very gooey, so don’t expect a skewer to come out clean like with a cake.
To prevent #2 from happening, take the brownies out after the given baking time and let them cool completely – preferably overnight. I often leave them in the oven or pop them into the fridge. If you find in the morning that they’re actually still too gooey to cut, don’t worry! You can, and I have, simply put them back into the oven for another few minutes, and they’ll cook some more and be absolutely fine.
How to make these Terry’s Chocolate Orange brownies!
To make the brownies, we’ll melt together the butter and chocolate – either in the microwave or on the stove is fine. While they’re melting, put your five eggs and sugar into a stand mixer or a bowl with an electric beater, and whisk them together on high speed for about five minutes.
You’ll end up with a thick mousse – and THIS is how you get brownies with shiny, slightly crunchy, crackly tops. AKA, the best thing in the world.
Finally, one point about the type of sugar to use here – of all the ingredients it matters st of all which sugar you use. Go for light or dark muscavado sugar, or a combination of the two, rather than caster sugar. It will make your brownies much more delicious!
- 280g sugar - for the best results use light brown muscavado or dark brown muscavado sugar - you can also use caster sugar
- 340g dark/plain chocolate - I use 55% chocolate
- 5 large free range eggs
- 225g unsalted butter
- 100g ground almonds (can also be replaced by plain flour)
- pinch salt
- generous splash of orange liqueur, if you want to add it!
- Preheat your oven to 170 degrees and line a brownie tin with parchment paper. The one I used was 15 inch by 11 inch.
- First, combine the five eggs and the sugar and set them to whisk on high speed for five minutes, or until they've transformed into a thick airy mousse like mixture.
In a large bowl, break the chocolate into chunks and heat in the microwave at thirty second intervals, stirring after each one. Once the chocolate is close to being melted, add the butter to the bowl and allow the heat of the chocolate to help it to melt too.
- By hand, combine the chocolate butter mixture with the sugar egg mixture and stir them gently together. Stir in the ground almonds and a large pinch of salt plus the orange liqueur if you're using it. If you like the sweet/salty combo, sprinkle some flakes of sea salt on top of the brownies before they're baked too.
- Pour the brownie batter into the pan and push 12 Terry's Chocolate Orange segments into the batter, so there's roughly one per brownie. Bake for 45 - 50 mins on the middle shelf of the oven, or until the edges are slightly browned and pulling away from the pan, and the top is crackled and firm (but the inside will still be very gooey). Remove from the oven after 50 mins at the most, even if you're not sure if they're cooked. They will continue to cook and firm up as they cool. Decorate with more Terry's Chocolate Orange segments.
- Let cool overnight if possible - if you want to enjoy immediately, scoop out a corner and enjoy with ice cream, but don't attempt to remove from the pan or cut until they've completely cooled, as they'll be too gooey.
- Store in an airtight tin for up to a week (yeah right!).
