When I first made them I was a bit skeptical because I have always had terrible orange flavored things before but after my first bite I was hooked, and when paired with the Orange Cream cheese frosting...it is taken clear out of the ball park!

These brownies brought back memories from my husbands childhood – he always enjoyed eating orange cupcakes as a kid (but in his "professional" opinion, these are much better!) The Test Kitchen
