In honor of this spooky time of the year, a recipe involv­ing blood is required.\

This recipe is deli­cious, but it’s not really my recipe, and that’s where the trick” comes in with my treat (you get both). The trick is I used boxed brownie mix. But not any old ver­sion of add-oil-and-egg-to-the-pow­dered mix. I used San Francisco’s own, Ghiradelli dark choco­late mix, which does not dis­s­ap­point when it comes to achiev­ing a deep dark choco­late fla­vor with­out being masked with ridicu­lous amounts of sugar. Blood orange, or orange olive oil can be pur­chased at your local olive oil shop or prob­a­bly even some fancy Whole Foods store. I picked up my bot­tle from We Olive in Belmont Shores where I’ve done many an olive oil tast­ing with the amaz­ing own­ers, Debby and Phil.

The com­bi­na­tion of dark choco­late and sweet-mel­low cit­rus in a moist brownie is allur­ing and deli­cious. Blood orange is spe­cial because it has less of a strin­gent fla­vor and more of a sweet orange with a slight raspberry/strawberry note. I paired the brown­ies with home­made mac­er­ated straw­berry blood orange olive oil ice cream and the com­bi­na­tion was sen­sa­tional per my guests orgas­mic” com­pli­ments.

So much for scar­ing them with blood!
