Orange Brownies Recipe

We can’t say enough about this delicious orange brownies recipe.  First of all, they are fancy and good enough to serve at a dinner party or simple enough to tuck into your child’s packed lunch.  There is plenty of sugar and butter to get your attention, and the glazed topping keeps them moist.  They also freeze well.  If you are looking for a special dessert, just make these and serve them with a scoop of ice cream on the side.  Then call us, and we will come right over.

    Your mom made these for an event at my home one time and I had a fit over them. They were one of the most delicious treats I have ever had! I tried to make them myself one time but mine were no where near as good as hers. Maybe I’ll try again….in case she left out an ingredient when she gave me the recipe!! Haha 😉
