Triple Sec Brownie "bites" with orange creme anglaise and mandarin oranges--NEW!

Recipe: Triple Sec Brownie "bites" with orange creme anglaise and mandarin oranges--NEW! NEW


Dependent upon which brownie mix you use


    1 box of brownie mix (I use a simple fudge brownie mix. No packets of stuff to add, no nuts or chips). You can decide your favorite or use your "from scratch" brownie recipe.

    Oil, eggs and water as specified on the box. Instead of the water you are going to substitute Triple Sec (a clear,orange-flavored liqueur. Or you can use the more expensive Grand Marnier or Cointreau). If you do not cook with alcohol, you can just add 2 tsp of orange flavoring to the water specified on the box and no alcohol).

    Mandarin orange segments (optional as garnish)


    Mix your brownies in a large bowl.

    For brownie "bites" I use my teeny muffin tin. I spray it with oil and then sprinkle sugar inside the muffin tins. Toss out the extra. Put in the batter. This will make at least 12 or more brownie bites. You might need to do these in batches. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. This is a shorter time because the tins are so small. You will know the brownies are done when the sides start to pull away from the edge of the tin. The middle of the brownies will still be moist; almost fudgy in consistency. Let them cool for 10 - 15 minutes and they will be easy to drop out of the tin. If you do not have a mini-tin you can use your regular brownie-baking pan and bake for the recommended amount of time. Then cut into very small brownies.

Serving Suggestions:

    Serve with the Orange CremeAnglaise and garnish with chilled mandarin orange segments if you choose. Colorful. And orange and chocolate go great together.

Enjoy. Cheers! Zola
