Ready or not, the holidays are here & coming in hot (well, technically cold since it is wintertime, but you get the picture). From cookie exchanges to the office holiday party, there’s no shortage of fun to be had and treats to be eaten. Whether you’re hosting your own holiday gathering or don’t want to be THAT guest who shows up empty handed, we’ve got the perfect festive dessert to impress all of your friends and family.

Inspired by the quintessential holiday treat, Terry's Chocolate Oranges, these Chocolate Orange Bubbles Brownies are a nostalgic fusion of rich chocolate flavor and zesty orange goodness. Baked to fudgy perfection and  infused with a burst of sweet citrus tang thanks to JUST Valencia Orange, these brownies get a final indulgent touch from chunks of Terry's Chocolate Orange slices for an extra layer of fa-la-la-la-lavor. 

Any way you slice it (see what we did there?), this Christmas-ready confection is certain to be the star of the dessert table at every holiday party.
