Ingredients
1/2 stick unsalted butter
2 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
3 Tbsp Round Pond Blood Orange Olive Oil
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/8 tsp salt
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Directions
Preheat over to 350 degrees.

Melt the butter and chocolate together in a medium pan over very low heat.  Stir together and remove from heat; add the Blood Orange Olive Oil, sugar and vanilla, mix well.  Add eggs one at a time, beating into the mixture rapidly to avoid cooking the eggs.  Stir in the salt, cocoa and flour (add nuts if desired).

Spread the mixture into a buttered* 8 inch square baking pan.  Bake until set, 35-40 minutes.  Cool before cutting with a sharp knife (tip: clean knife between cuts).

* Lining the pan with parchment paper eliminates buttering the pan and makes the brownies easier to remove.
