Earl Grey Infused Chocolate Brownies With Kumquats

Fun fact about me: my love for chocolate runs deep! I will eat anything smothered in the ooey-gooey goodness, so I am extra excited to share this recipe with you all. It combines some of the best flavors including earl grey tea, chocolate and a dash of citrus. This recipe will convert non-chocolate and non-citrus enthusiasts to total believers because the flavors are so subtle and create a perfect harmony in your mouth!

My favorite part about this recipe? The amount of earl grey! There is earl grey in the brownie mixture and in the drizzle. This not only adds a tremendous amount of flavor, it also makes the brownies stay moist. The kumquats are like the cherry on top!
