I felt that the orange taste was a little too medicinal. I would suggest changing the extract to orange juice and some zest. Otherwise, these brownies were really moist and had a good chocolate flavor.

If you really love orange, you'll love these brownies, otherwise, the orange flavor distracts from the typical chocolaty flavoring of brownies. The taste was similar to an orange cream filled chocolate candy. My family found them just ok. I think they would be better with vanilla extract or with strawberry extract, since strawberry typically blends it self better with chocolate.

Made these brownies this afternoon. Absolutely fantastic. I give them a full 5 star rating. I followed the recipe just as written (except I added an extra 3T of a.p. flour because I live at 6580 feet elevation). Moist, fudgy, chocolate goodness. Can't go wrong with these.

Very tasty. I made a few changes/additions - added a splash of vanilla and a big pinch of salt and used orange zest and a little orange juice instead of the orange extract. Very nice recipe.

this recipe is wonderful! I did use 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa with the melted butter. I added 1/2 tsp. salt with the 1 cup all-purpose flour and sifted together. I also greased and floured a 13x9x2" baking pan and I used miniature chocolate chips (1 cup). I didn't dust with the confectioners' sugar-to me, the chocolate chips added enough of a touch! When I cut the brownies, and sampled small "cuts", I found these to be very moist! I got 31 squares out of this recipe! delowenstein

really great, you can sub powdered sugar, for a powdered sugar glaze, add some orange extract to the glaze if you want

These brownies are great, but I decided to kick up the orange flavor with a teaspoon of orange zest and chopped orange flavored chocolate instead of chocolate chips. I will be making these again for Christmas as my father loves anything with chocolate and orange flavor.

I followed the recipe almost exactly...I added about a half a tablespoon of vegetable oil because I like my brownies to be a little moist. I also used mini chocolate chips and covered the top which created a little layer of chocolate. My family absolutely loved it!
