It amazes me how changing one ingredient can truly transform a dish. With the addition of Carter and Cavero’s Blood Orange Olive Oil, your brownies will be far from ordinary.

What you’ll need:
4oz unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup of Carter and Cavero Blood Orange Olive Oil
2 cups of sugar
2tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs
1 cup of all purpose flour
1 cup of walnuts or pecans, chopped (optional)

What to do:
Allow all of the ingredients to warm up to room temperature. Position your oven rack in the center of the oven, and preheat to 350F degrees. Oil a 9×13 inch pan and line it with parchment paper. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler and add the oil and stir until smooth. Cool completely. Stir in the sugar and vanilla. Beat in the eggs until homogeneous then stir in the flour and nuts. With a rubber spatula, scrape the batter into the pan, ensuring that the batter is smoothed out to the edges. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely before serving.
