- Line a brownie pan (13x9) with aluminum foil and lightly grease the foil. Make sure that the foil goes over the edges of the pan. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine Eggs and Granulated Sugar. Beat the eggs until the mixture is plea yellow. In a smaller bowl combine the Cocoa and Flour. Once you have mixed the Four with the Cocoa, add the Flour mixture to the Eggs. beat until just smooth. Stir in the melted Butter and make sure that all of the ingredients are well combined. Bake in an oven for 25-30 minutes or until the toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Once the Brownies are baked, cool them in a pan on a wire rack.
- While the Brownies are cooling off, we can prepare the Orange frosting. In a large bowl combine 1/4 c Butter and the Orange Zest. Beat with an electric mixer until well combined. Add 1 c Powdered Sugar with 1 T Orange Juice. Beat until well combined. Add the rest of the Powdered Sugar and slowly add the rest of the Orange Juice, until you get a frosting consistency.
- Spread the frosting (evenly) over the cooled Brownies. Cover and chill in the fridge for 1/2 hour.
- While the Brownies are chilling in the fridge, lets make the chocolate to top off our brownies with. In a medium saucepan, combine chocolate and the 1/4 c Butter. Cook and stir constantly over low heat until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from the heat, and stir in the Corn Syrup. Let stand 15 minutes before pouring the mixture over the Brownies.
- Slowly pour the melted chocolate mixture over the frosted Brownies. Tilt the pan gently to make sure that the chocolate spreads over the whole top. Chill for about 1/2 hour or until the chocolate is set.
- Using the edges of the foil, lift the uncut Brownies from the pan. Cut into bars. The final count should be 32 bars.
Place bars in a single layer air tight container and cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months. To serve, thaw if frozen. Let refrigerated Brownies stay at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.The final product should look like this:
