I can't tell you how many time I've made this recipe. This sophisticated adult brownie has just enough Grand Marnier added to remind us that orange is wonder with chocolate. I sometimes add a bit more to the top. From Marlene Sorosky

    3/4 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed

  • ·
    4 tbsp. grand marnier
  • ·
    1 tsp. vanilla
  • ·

How to Make Grand Marnier Brownies (TNT)


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan. Melt chocolate and
    butter in medium pan over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and
    cool slightly. Beat the brown and white sugars and the eggs in large bowl with
    mixer until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add chocolate, 3 T. of the Grand
    Marnier, the vanilla and orange peel, mixing until blended. Mix in flour, salt
    and chocolate chips on low speed. Pour mixture into prepared pan and smooth the
    top. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until sides look done and top feels firm. A cake
    tester inserted 2 inches from center should test clean, but the center will
    jiggle and look undercooked. Remove from oven and brush the top with remaining 1
    T. Grand Marnier. Cover pan with plastic wrap and cool completely. Cut into 2
    inch squares. The brownies may be stored, covered, at room temperature for
    several days, or they may be frozen. Defrost, covered, at room temperature. This
    sophisticated brownie has just enough Grand Marnier added to remind us that
    orange is wonderful with chocolate. Makes 16
  2. Note: I've made these for large parties, and I found that I didn't make enough,
    as they went in a hurry. Should have made a triple batch. lc
