What are Chocolate Orange Brownies?

A chocolate brownie (commonly referred to simply as a brownie) is a square or rectangular, chocolate baked treat. Brownies come in a variety of forms and may be either fudgy or cakey, depending on their density. They may include nuts, frosting, cream cheese, chocolate chips, or other ingredients.

In addition, one of the advantages of this dessert is that you can prepare it in advance, eliminating some stress on the day of your party! You can freeze the brownies for up to 3 months, making sure that they are suitably wrapped to reduce the risk of freezer burn.
