Orange-Infused Brownies

Are you looking for that hidden "wow" in your homemade brownies?  Orange essential oil makes a great flavor booster.  These brownies will surely get your mouth watering just smelling them from the oven.  

Below is my tried-and-true, from-scratch brownie recipe.  If however, you are in a hurry, simply add the Orange essential oil to your favorite brownie mix for an instant gourmet taste!!

2 cups sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 eggs, whisked one at a time
1 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 cup flour
Milk (if needed for thinning)
10-15 drops Orange Vitality Essential Oil**

Directions:  Pour into a 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350 degrees, for 25-30 min.

*Not all essential oils are created equally. Most essential oils that you buy in stores are not pure and could do harm if applied topically, inhaled, or ingested.  Do your research as to which oils are safe.  I have spent hours upon hours of looking into Young Living and I fully trust their process in extracting essential oils without harsh chemicals or high temperatures.  Want to know where to get them?  Follow this link HERE.  Be sure to check it out!
