more Valentine's Week treats...

Our review of orenji catering's 2008 Valentine's Day treats continues with the first of two specialty brownies created in celebration of this romantic holiday!
Now, nothing says romance more than chocolate... so we set out to create a sinfully rich and decadent chocolate brownie-- deep in flavor, fudgey in texture, but with an "adult" sensibility! The result: our delectable triple chocolate brownies with Godiva truffle ganache.
This creation began with the finest Belgian bittersweet chocolate, dark Dutch cocoa, and finely ground cocoa nibs. From there, farm fresh eggs, creamery butter, flour, cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil (for a deeper taste), Tahitian vanilla paste, and a hint of both cinnamon and espresso were added to create a dark, rich batter.

Baked in beautiful individual heart shapes, these brownies were already promising to be a new orenji favorite!

But back in the orenji test kitchens we felt that the most sensual of holidays deserved something a little more decadent. And so we created a smooth and creamy whipped ganache topping for our already delectable brownies. Belgian bittersweet chocolate, cream, and smooth Godiva white chocolate liqueur brought our ganache to life, the sweetness of the topping perfectly complimenting the deep and bitter brownies.
Bittersweet chocolate curls completed these triple chocolate brownies, taking them to a new level of deliciousness!
While designed to be individually sized, we think that these brownies would be best shared with that special someone in your life!
Tomorrow is the big day... enjoy yourselves! From all of us at orenji catering, we hope your Valentine's Day is sweet!
