Brownies are such a great and versatile dessert. There are so many possibilities in the search for the perfect BROWNIE.

 

I love to play with brownies……combine ingredients…..see what I will end up with.

 

Luckily, most of the time I succeed and my family and friends approve.
The other day I had me some major chocolate craving….there was no good, delicious, creamy European chocolate in the house.

 

By now you might have noticed that I am a total CHOCOLATE SNOB no apologies here….and there are only few kinds of chocolates I will eat…

 

To satisfy my chocolate craving I had to go to plan B….to make brownies….Orange Brownies with Candied Ginger and Orange Buttercream Icing that is….
