Sorry, not even when you’re grilling because it’s too hot in the kitchen or out in the wildness by a campfire. These barbecued chocolate oranges are a fantastic summer or BBQ dessert. They’re easy to make and a great recipe for the kids to get in on the fun. When you’re grilling the oranges, the brown batter steams inside — so you end up with an incredibly soft, moist brownie with a wonderful flavor of orange. You can make these either on the grill or by the campfire! Just follow the instructions below, wrap the oranges in tin foil, and place them on the grill or close to your camp’s flame — not directly in the flame though! If you’re really out there roughin’ it, you can use boxed brownie batter instead of homemade. What Are Barbecued Chocolate Oranges? Barbecued chocolate oranges are a straightforward dessert. You carefully scoop out the center of an orange (a great snack while you’re waiting for your brownie to finish baking, too!) and pour the batter into the hollowed-out orange. The brownie steams up within the skin of the orange, becoming moist and flavorful! What You Need To Make Barbecued Chocolate Oranges Measuring cups and Spoons Mixing bowls Saucepan or microwave Tinfoil How To Make Barbecued Chocolate Oranges This recipe comes together in no time and is so much fun to serve on a summer day, just as it starts to get cool. Here’s a taste of how you make barbecued chocolate oranges (get the full written recipe below): To make the brownie batter, put the chocolate and butter in a large bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water. (You can also heat it gently in the microwave until melted.) Stir occasionally until the chocolate and butter are melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and set it aside to cool a little. Add in the sugars and whisk until combined. Then, whisk in the eggs and vanilla. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, and salt over the chocolate mixture. Fold in the dry ingredients until just a little bit of the flour mixture is still visible. Prep your oranges by cutting off the top and use a spoon to scoop out the fruit. Pour the batter into the orange about 3/4 of the way. Place its lid on and wrap the orange well in tin foil. Place directly on the grill on medium heat (350oF/180oC) and bake for roughly 35-45 minutes. Gemma’s Pro Chef Tips For Making Barbecued Chocolate Oranges If you don’t have time to make your own, feel free to use store-bought boxed brownie mix. Make the oranges ahead of time and bring them camping. Put them on the grill or cook close to the campfire (not in the fire.) Make sure you buy medium-large oranges, so there is enough space for your brownie. Do not use clementines or mandarins — their skins are too thin.
