I recently tried Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix made with a special ingredient and loved it!
My sister, sister-in-law and I went shopping together before Christmas. When I spotted the Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix, I commented that I would like to try it because it included the chocolate chips. While I rarely use baking mixes, I thought using the mix might make the Christmas baking a little easier.
The sales associate of the kitchen shoppe offered to make a batch of her brownies so we could taste them. She had a special ingredient she added that she thought we would want to try. I am so glad we accepted her offer. They were the best brownies I have ever eaten.
Needless to say, we left the shoppe with several gift bags that included the brownie mix and the shoppe's special ingredient, blood orange olive oil.
Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix
Ghirardelli Brownie Mix, Dark Chocolate, 20 ozThe #1 reason I wanted to try the Ghirardelli mix is because it included chocolate chips and required only 1 egg, water and olive oil to make. Those are ingredients that are always in my kitchen.
newly discovered blood orange olive oil
gives these delicious brownies an extra punch with a slight taste of orange.
Everyone in my family loves them! I definitely look forward to using
the blood orange olive oil in additional recipes.
We don't all agree on whether brownies should be iced or not, so I make a small recipe of icing. Those who want the icing don't agree on whether it should have nuts or not, so I divide the icing in half and mix walnuts or pecans in half of the icing. Therefore, one batch of brownies makes 3 different treats. Add a scoop of ice cream and you have the perfect dessert.

A Note about the Specialty Shoppe We Visited
As far as I know, the Bazaar Orange Olive Oil that we purchased is only
sold at the
Bazaar store in Collierville, Tn, located in the historic Collierville Town Square. Sadly, I
couldn't find an online resource.
If you love to cook and are ever in Collierville, Tn, you should
definitely plan to spend a few hours in this store. It isn't a big
store, but it is packed with fabulous unique kitchen items, including
their specialty oils and vinegars. I love this kitchen specialty store and their extremely helpful sales
