Orange and Dark Chocolate Brownies (Almost Homemade)

Puff pastry jam and cheese tarts

These brownies are as simple as it gets, but the end result is worthy of any Kitchen Conqueror! The Hubs says they taste like an orange cream chocolate from a candy box. Here’s the magic: start with a box of ready-to-mix brownie mix (we love Betty Crocker Dark Chocolate, not sponsored). The studded semi-sweet chocolate and a surprising hint of balsamic vinegar make perfect partners. The orange olive oil brings the freshness of a just-sliced orange, while the vinegar balances the sweetness and adds a touch of Tuscan sophistication, like grandma’s recipe with a modern twist.

In just half an hour, you can whip up a batch of these brownies, ready to impress with a sweet treat that seems far more complicated. GO WILD, Kitchen Conqueror! Try Dark Raspberry, Maple, or even switch out the chocolate for a new twist.
