1 teaspoon finely shredded Florida Orange Peel
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
Orange-Fudge Frosting (see recipe, below)

Grease an 8"x8"x2" baking pan; set aside. In a medium saucepan melt margarine or butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Cool 5 minutes. Add the sugar, eggs, thawed orange juice concentrate, orange peel, and vanilla. Beat by hand just until combined.

Stir in flour, nuts, and baking soda until combined. Spread the batter in prepared baking pan.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes for a fudgy brownie. For a firmer brownie, bake 25 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Spread Orange-Fudge Frosting over cooled brownies. If desired, score frosting decoratively with tines of fork. Cut into bars.

Makes 16 brownies.
