DELICIOUS! This is a very wet, soft brownie, with the perfect amount of Grand Marnier. I would recommend cutting them into 1-inch squares because they're so rich. HINT: pour the batter into the pan, and then sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the batter. (Mine sunk to the bottom and melted.)Read More

Delicious recipe! I love orange and chocolate together and this does the trick. A tip for those who mention their chips sank to the bottom: toss the chips in a bit of flour before adding them to whatever you're baking, and they won't sink :)
These are GRAND (!) and have become a regular item for company and gift-giving. Note: A small piece goes a long way. I found mini chocolate chips work best; standard size sink to the bottom. I believe most people will enjoy these brownies.
These were excellent. Since I did not have any baking chocolate on hand I used the conversion on the back of the cocoa powder (3 Tbsp cocoa 1 Tbsp oil per square of chocolate). I also used 1 Tbsp orange extract in place of the Grand Marnier and zest. They tasted just like the chocolate oranges at christmas time. Very moist brownie. I will certainly make them again.
I had never made brownies without a mix before this, so was a little concerned starting off. After reading reviews, I used 1/4 cup of Kahlua instead of the Grand Marnier (just because that's what we had on hand) and these came out fantastic! Our guests loved these brownies and have asked me already to make them again. Great recipe!
I tried Hennessy Cognac with extra vanilla, orange zest - fresh and dried (McCormick Valencia Orange Peel). I also put the chips on the top and all the flavorings in the mix. I baked for 35 min. The flavor was good. I think the next time our family would like to try Chambord as we like chocolate/raspberry flavors.
SO fudgy and moist! Really fantastic combination of flavors that won rave reviews with a group of 10 who "taste tested" it. There were leftovers which was fortunate, because these brownies actually tasted better 3 days after they were made. I'll make them ahead next time. Scrumptious!
these were excellent. I did not use choc chips at all. I think there could be a lot less sugar and I will try that next time.
So Good!! Made a few changes-omitted the orange zest and used Kahula, baked in a 9" pan for 25 min to save time. Very rich. good flavor. Passed out a few recipes tonight
Yum! A deliciously grown-up tasting brownie. Great brownie texture woth or with out the Grand Marnier.
These made great Kahlua Brownies by removing the orange zest and adding 1/4 cup of Kahlua. To serve, I put a generous brownie square on a plate, topped each with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and drizzled with hot chocolate sauce. It was a delicious dessert.
made for a large dinner party, everyone loved it, everyone finished every bite of their brownie. Followed recipe as is.
I have been adding Grand Marnier to my brownies for years. These are awesome...if you try them once you will never settle for regular brownies again! Orange liquer is not the same...
a bit dry. Next time not cooking for 30 mins. Saved them with chocolate frosting recipe from this site. First time making homemade brownies not giving up hope!
We all liked these, however, thought next time I make them I will use less Grand Marnier...taste was a bit strong. (I like GM on the rocks, so it's not a matter of not liking GM.
I made these for a dinner party, and the guests loved them! I followed the recipe exactly, but since I wanted the orange taste to be a bit stronger I added a tablespoon of orange extract along with the Grand Marnier.
After trying this recipe, I am definitely going to make brownie trays instead of the traditional cookie trays as gifts. Coworkers and family loved them so I made two more double batches tonight. I tried one with Grand Marnier, one with Kahlua and one with Peppermint Schnapps. The orange had the strongest flavor but Kahlua was my favorite. Great recipe! Thanks for making my Christmas baking so easy!
Great flavor! My family loves the chocolate oranges that come out at Christmas time and these tasted just like them! I only mixed in the Grand Marnier and did not spread the remaining on top, and I sprinkled the chocolate chips on top only.
Delicious! I even went to the trouble of zesting an orange, and it was worth it!
WOW! I didn't add the remaining GM at the end and they were perfect! Very sophisticated taste...
How could this NOT be good?! Very satisfying and yummy. I agree, though, that it should be cut into smaller pieces, because it is rich -- and deadly for dieters
Wonderful flavour. I didn't have any orange zest so I added orange extract. Added chocolate chips on top and they were done in 30 minutes with no jiggle in the middle at all.
This is an orange-flavored brownie recipe that is wonderful as a close to a good meal. I didn't find it overly rich, and I used milk-chocolate chips and 2oz. of unsweetend chocolate instead of 1 oz. I also added sliced strawberries and cream on the plate as a complement to the orange flavoring. The end-size is pretty small though, so you could double this recipe for a larger crowd.
Rich and tasty. The orange flavor really comes through, for better or worse. Very good, but not a recipe to knock your socks off.
A little too rich alone, but perfect with some vanilla ice cream
The best brownies I've ever eaten! Already a family favorite after making them once! They're super easy, moist, fudgy and delicious. I can't imagine ever making any other brownies-they're absolutely spectacular!
These are AWESOME!!! Love them! I also sprinkle my chocolate chips on the batter after it's in the pan because I did notice that they sink to the bottom otherwise. These are a no-fail treat that I will continue to keep making! Thanks!
Good - gooey and chocolatey, but the orange flavor was not as strong as I would have liked. If I were to make this again, I would probably add a little orange extract to pep it up a bit.
Delicious. fudgy and rich. I sprinkled Milk Chocolate chips and dried cherries on half to try it. Yum! the side with the cherries was slightly less rich than the non-cherry side but had a nice tartness and complimented the Grand Manier wonderfully.
These brownies are delicious! The grand marnier is subtle but flavorful. I added extra fresh orange zest too. I baked for 30 mins in a ceramic baking dish.
Everyone at worked loved these brownies!
The flavor was good but I've had better.
They tasted better after they had set for a day.
Really liked this recipe! I did make a few changes. I wanted to be sure that they had lots of orange flavour so I replaced 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar with the juice of two oranges (1/2 cup) and I used all of the peel from both of the oranges (about 1.5 Tbs.). I also used both bittersweet and semisweet chips. They came out great!
Very Very Good! I Normally don't like Grand Marnier,...but these are definately an exception! Yummy!
Such a gourmet brownie. Sometimes I substitute Peach Schnapps. So good Rosina . Thanks !
I didn't have orange zest so I skipped it and it was still to die for. Love love love!
This is a very adult brownie. Everyone loved these when I made them. They make great gifts. A good recipe for the holidays.
O.M.G. These were some of the best brownies that I have ever had! The orange liqueur and zest added such an amazing flavor boost. I left off the final tablespoon of Grand Marnier (that is not baked in) so my kids could try them. These are going to be my go-to recipe for any party where I need to bring a dessert. And while I usually bake from a boxed mix, this recipe has changed my mind when it comes to brownies. Gathering the extra ingredients to make them from scratch is WORTH IT! So good!
Wow, super rich, moist, chewy brownie flavor. I replaced half the butter with applesauce, used semi-sweet chcoclate, and a bit less sugar. Chocolate orange isn't my favorite combo but many people at work loved these.
Based on what other reviewers said, I lowered the amount of sugar and am glad I did that as I do not like extremely sweet deserts. I used 110 g of brown sugar and 120 g of white sugar (150 g is 3/4 cup of sugar whether brown or white). These are extremely rich and I found them to be better the next day (they were less intense and better tasting in my opinion).
These are delicious, moist and very rich. I feel one inch squares are the optimal size for these brownies. I followed other reviewers' suggestion and sprinkled the chocolate chips on top of the batter and think they look even more enticing. I didn't have orange zest so I bet they would even be better with it, but they were still delicious without. This recipe is keeper.
