Barbecued Chocolate Oranges

There’s never an excuse to not have dessert! Sorry, not even when you’re grilling because it’s too hot in the kitchen or out in the wildness by a campfire. 

These barbecued chocolate oranges are a fantastic summer or BBQ dessert. They’re easy to make and a great recipe for the kids to get in on the fun. When you’re grilling the oranges, the brown batter steams inside — so you end up with an incredibly soft, moist brownie with a wonderful flavor of orange. 

You can make these either on the grill or by the campfire! Just follow the instructions below, wrap the oranges in tin foil, and place them on the grill or close to your camp’s flame — not directly in the flame though! If you’re really out there roughin’ it, you can use boxed brownie batter instead of homemade.

What Are Barbecued Chocolate Oranges?

Barbecued chocolate oranges are a straightforward dessert. You carefully scoop out the center of an orange (a great snack while you’re waiting for your brownie to finish baking, too!) and pour the batter into the hollowed-out orange. The brownie steams up within the skin of the orange, becoming moist and flavorful!

How To Make Barbecued Chocolate Oranges

This recipe comes together in no time and is so much fun to serve on a summer day, just as it starts to get cool. Here’s a taste of how you make barbecued chocolate oranges (get the full written recipe below):

  1. To make the brownie batter, put the chocolate and butter in a large bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water. (You can also heat it gently in the microwave until melted.)
  2. Stir occasionally until the chocolate and butter are melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and set it aside to cool a little.
  3. Add in the sugars and whisk until combined. Then, whisk in the eggs and vanilla.
  4. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, and salt over the chocolate mixture. Fold in the dry ingredients until just a little bit of the flour mixture is still visible. 
  5. Prep your oranges by cutting off the top and use a spoon to scoop out the fruit.
  6. Pour the batter into the orange about 3/4 of the way. Place its lid on and wrap the orange well in tin foil.
  7. Place directly on the grill on medium heat (350oF/180oC) and bake for roughly 35-45 minutes.

Gemma’s Pro Chef Tips For Making Barbecued Chocolate Oranges

  • If you don’t have time to make your own, feel free to use store-bought boxed brownie mix. 
  • Make the oranges ahead of time and bring them camping. Put them on the grill or cook close to the campfire (not in the fire.)
  • Make sure you buy medium-large oranges, so there is enough space for your brownie. Do not use clementines or mandarins — their skins are too thin. 
  • If you’d like to make just 1 BBQ orange, use my batter recipe for my Microwave Mug Brownie.

Magnolia closer to finals return, overcomes Rain or Shine in Game 5

MANILA, Philippines–Following back-to-back losses in the PBA Philippine Cup, coach Chito Victolero has yearned for nothing more than rest for Magnolia.

He got that during the Lenten break and the Hotshots were never the same again.

Victolero and his wards typified that and more in Magnolia’s gritty 82-74 victory over Rain or Shine on Tuesday night at Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay, stringing up three straight wins and breaking their tie in their race-to-four series in one fell swoop.

“We just tried to be consistent. We tried to focus more on defense and limit their score under 90. Defensively I’m proud of what we’ve done,” Victolero told reporters.

“That’s where we draw our strength—energy,” he added. “Fresh legs are very important to my system. I badly wanted to have my players rest since we’e been tired physically and mentally.”

Mark Barroca and Jio Jalalon made up for Paul Lee’s unproductive night, scoring 14 each, while Rafi Reavis and Ian Sangalang tossed in nine and eight points, respectively, to help the Hotshots inch closer to a second-straight all-Filipino Finals appearance.

The Elasto Painters leaned on its skipper and their quiet contributor in this series Gabe Norwood to keep their foes within striking range.

But they had no answers for Magnolia, which aside from clamping them down to just 30% from the field, also managed to draw 54 points from its reinforcements.

“We’re number one in points allowed in defense [in the past]. As long as our defense is in good shape, we do well,” Victolero said.

Magnolia will try to close out the second-best team of the elimination round when they meet again on Friday at Ynares Center, where they enjoy an undefeated streak of sorts.

“That’s great news,” Victolero said of playing in Antipolo. “We just need to find ways again when we play them again.”

The scores:

MAGNOLIA 82 – Barroca 14, Jalalon 14, Reavis 9, Brondial 9, Sangalang 8, Herndon 8, Dela Rosa 7, Ramos 7, Melton 6, Lee 0.

RAIN OR SHINE 74 – Norwood 15, Yap 12, Borboran 11, Daquioag 9, Torres 8, Nambatac 6, Belga 5, Rosales 3, Mocon 3, Ahanmisi 2, Ponferada 0.

Quarters: 16-10, 40-34, 58-57, 82-74.
