    Mirj's Note:

    Chocolate and orange together -- one of my favorite flavor combinations. I found this recipe after a neighbor gave me a gift of some homemade orange marmalade, way too much for us to have on toast alone.

      Excellent brownies. I never had orange and chocolate together in brownies before but we loved the combination. I had to make a small change to this recipe because I only had 4 squares of unsweetened chocolate I added 1 ounce (square) of semi sweet chocolate and I was also out of the extracts, so I skipped the vanilla and just added 1 teaspoon of orange juice. Delicious even though we couldn't wait for 24 hours as the recipe suggests. Thanks for posting this keeper.

      Very good brownie. Have made this twice, once with regular marmalade and the second time with English cut. My sister loved this the first time, but all she said when I made it the second time was "WoW".

      Thanks Mirj, this recipe deserves 5 stars! I made half a recipe in an 8x8 inch pan exactly as described. They do need a day or two to mellow. I had doubts tasting these the night they were made since the chocolate was too bitter and the orange too strong--but the change after 24 hours was incredible. WOW! The flavors were perfectly balanced and the texture was very moist without being gooey. My only addition might be a chocolate glaze or frosting but they're wonderful plain.
