Double Chocolate Orange Brownies – #McCormickBakeSale $75 Giveaway!


Double Chocolate Orange Brownies It’s fall which means it finally bake sale season! I remember growing up my Grandmother making the most delicious desserts for local bake sales and I was always more than happy to sample a treat. One thing that reminds me of my Grandmother is oranges. I spent my summer in hot southern California at her home, which was surrounded by a grove of sweet oranges. All summer long we would slurp on oranges and even the scent just brings me back to being at her home.

Since it’s bake sale season we’re having a virtual bake sale! Inspired by my Grandmother I decided to put my own twist on an orange kissed brownie recipe from McCormick.

    For anyone who read the phrase “your pan” and wondered what size, the original recipe called for a 13×9, but this one does a 9×7.
