Blood Orange Brownies

Brownies:

Ingredients:

1 box of Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix (I particularly like Ghiradelli)

Substitute the 1/3 cup (or amount directions indicate) of vegetable oil with Flying Olive’s Blood Orange Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Directions:

Bake as directed on the box. Serve with the Raspberry Reduction Below, ice cream, whipped cream or topping.

Raspberry Balsamic Reduction:

Ingredients:

1 cup of Flying Olive Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar

Directions:

Place the Flying Olive Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar in a small saucepan and heat on low simmer for about 15 minutes.

Let the balsamic cool in the pan. It will thicken more as it cools.

Just before serving, place a small scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of the brownie.

Drizzle the Raspberry Balsamic Reduction on top of the ice cream.

Serve.
