    Perfect for Picky Little Eaters

    Nancy Schneider from Saint Charles, MO

    I have two preschoolers who can be very picky about food. However, they like to dip their vegetables and chips. I wasn't sure if they would eat this because of it's color. However, my 4 year old loved it and even got my 3 year old to try some. I can feel good about this healthy option for my little dippers!

    I love pumpkin so I was sure I would love this recipe. For some reason it just did not taste good to me. My family liked it a little better than I did but I don't think I'll make it again.

If you love the taste of chocolate and orange together, then you will love these Orange & Feta Fudgy Brownies!! Add more orange liqueur and orange zest to this for extra flavor. The feta cheese makes for a delicious, savory, fudgy brownie.

    A Surprise!

    Patricia Lewis from FULLERTON, CA

    When I told my husband I was going to make these for dessert on Valentine's Day he was very skeptical! He was not at all sure about FETA in a Brownie!!!! However he loved them as did everyone else. The combination of the orange and feta really works well. I will make them again soon.

    Different, but good

    Michelle Conner from ALCOA, TN

    I tried this recipe and found that although it was very different, the taste was pretty much the same as other fudge recipes. It didn't really stand out to me, but it was good because it was still fudge and it was still chocolate.

    GOOD, but CHOCO CHIP COOKIES are STill the best

    Feta? Who Knew?

    Priscilla-Jane Raykoske from WALLINGFORD, VT

    When I first saw this receipt, I was intrigued! My family are "brownie monsters" and will eat them in any form. This receipt is unique in that it contains Feta Cheese. The end result is moist, ymmy good, and very fragrant (the orange). Easy to make and now one of our favorites!

    Fantastic Brownies

    Nancy Johnson from MASON, MI

    I made the Orange & Feta Fudgy Brownies for a party. Wow, the flavors were somewhat complex and blended together beautifully. My husband wants them again SOON, since I brought the entire batch to the party. I recommend that they be cut in very small squares, since they are so rich. They are mouth-watering dark chocolate brownies.
