Quick and Decadent Brownies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by ktdid

Great for those nights when your child announces they need to take a treat to school the next day. Also well worth making for any time you need a chocolate fix. Use whatever types of chocolate chips you have on hand, but the recommended mix is particularly good. Variation: Substitute Kahlua for orange liqueur and strong coffee for orange juice. This was our 1993 Christmas card recipe.

This brownie is good for a quick change of pace from the usual. The orange/chocolate combination is one I wouldn't normally choose, but it was good. I might decrease the amount of chips if I were to make this one again, or keep the same but use more semi-sweet instead of milk chocolate. Thanks for a good recipe !
