"Loved the flavor of these brownies! Didn't change a thing!"

"I quickened this up by using a boxed brownie mix and adding in the pecans, oj concentrate and orange peel and then topping with this frosting. Came out very good...and even better the next day as the flavors mellowed. If you like the combination of chocolate and orange, this is a must try!"
