You guys! I am not exaggerating here… these are quite possibly the best brownies I have ever made.
I am so so so in love with them, I could eat them every single day. (Except I won’t… because my waistline, and my husband, wouldn’t love me for that!)
Rich, dark, chewy mocha brownies laced with fragrant cardamom and beautiful orange zest. It’s a party in your mouth. So good!
Remember those chocolate oranges that are always around at Christmas? You know, the foil wrapped ones that you whack on the counter and they fall into cute little orange segments?
Well, they were the inspiration for these brownies.
Those and my favorite ice cream combo ever from my favorite little ice cream shop (Elevated Ice Cream in Port Townsend, in case you were wondering!)… a scoop of swiss orange chocolate chip and a scoop of cardamom, eaten at the same time!
