Triple Chocolate Orange Brownies

Vegan Triple Chocolate Orange Brownies
I know it’s summer and you’re all sweltering in this heatwave and you don’t want to turn on the oven and blablabla…

But here in Scotland, every single stereotype ever known about Scottish weather is coming true, so I very much want to turn on the oven. #winteriscoming

Not to mention that I have an office full of colleagues to bribe please. My Oreo Chocolate Truffles and Peanut Butter Marble Cake have already gone done like a house on fire, and these Triple Chocolate Orange Brownies were extremely popular as well (all gone by tea time at 3pm, and I didn’t get one!). One person even threatened to get nasty if I didn’t make more of them – er, surely that’s a good thing? Isn’t it?

These are the perfect treat to make for the office as everyone can just grab a slice (or three, as I know some of my coworkers have), or to bring to a party as I am doing today. (I’ve made a mean batch of White Chocolate Peanut Butter Blondies that I’m bringing to a party, watch out for that one next week!)
