  • ¾ cup butter
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate at least 70% cocoa solids, chopped (I use dark chocolate chips)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract/flavouring or orange blossom water
  • the grated rind of 1 orange or 1 teaspoon dried or powdered grated orange rind
  • 1 cup plain all purpose flour
  • 1 cup 6 ounces milk chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Grease a 13 x 9 inch baking pan.
  • In a bain marie or a saucepan over very low heat, melt the dark chocolate with the butter, stirring constantly. Set aside to cool.
  • Beat the eggs and sugar together well with a whisk.
  • Stir in the chocolate and butter mixture with a wooden spoon.
  • Add the orange flavouring.
  • Mix the orange rind with the flour.
  • Add the flour gradually to the chocolate mixture, folding it in gently but thoroughly with the wooden spoon.
  • Pour into the prepared baking pan.
  • Sprinkle the milk chocolate chips evenly over top.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the centre comes out virtually clean (the center should still be a bit squidgy).
  • Cool completely before cutting into squares to serve.
