Why I Love This Recipe

I won the Blue Ribbon at the Texas State Fair. This is not my original recipe -- I got it from Chocolatier, and it is SOOO good!


Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
4 bars (1.5 ounces each) good dark chocolate, broken up
4 large eggs, at room temperature
2-1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon orange extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour


Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter 13x9x2-inch baking pan.


1. Melt butter and chocolate in saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally.


Remove from heat.


2. Beat eggs and sugar in mixing bowl 2 to 3 minutes or until light and thickened, using electric mixer at medium speed.


Beat in vanilla and orange extracts.


Gradually beat in chocolate mixture.


Beat in salt.


Beat in flour in 2 additions, using low speed. Pour batter in prepared pan.


3. Bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it.


Cool brownies completely in pan on wire rack.


Cream Cheese Topping:


8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature


4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature


1 teaspoon grated orange zest


2 cups powdered sugar
