Double Chocolate Orange Cookies

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

One of my favourite flavour combinations has always been chocolate and orange. When we use to have boxes of Cadbury’s Roses at Christmas, I always use to search for the orange cremes first!

Last year I made a chocolate orange layer cake for my birthday (you can find the recipe here). So I thought it was about time I made some chocolate orange cookies!ย These cookies are really soft and chewy. I also really like that there are dark and milk chocolate chunks!

I hope you enjoy this recipe! As always, if you try any of my recipes I would love to hear your thoughts and see your photos!

Double chocolate Orange Cookies

Ingredients

140g butter, softened

180g brown sugar

1 egg

100g milk chocolate, roughly chopped

100g dark chocolate, roughly chopped

Juice of 1 orange

Zest of 2 oranges

1/2 tsp salt

230g plain flour

30g cocoa powder

1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

 

Method

1.Beat the sugar and butter together until light and fluffy.

2.Add the egg and beat until combined.

3.Next add the chocolate, orange zest and juice and mix again until all of the pieces are evening distributed through the dough.

4.Finally gently fold in the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder.

5.Put the mixture on a large piece of clingfilm and roll in to a log, make sure you twist the ends so cookie dough doesnโ€™t spill out, also push the ends of the log so they are flat and place in the freezer.

6.After a couple of hours you can cut the log in to portions (around 1cm thick works well) and place the discs on a sheet of greaseproof paper on a baking tray. Bake the cookies in the oven at 175c (fan assisted) for around 10 minutes. You want the edges to be set and slightly crunchy but the middle to be quite soft.

I like to cut a couple of discs off and bake them and leave the rest in the freezer, that way freshly baked cookies are only ever 15 minutes away!

Enjoy!

    1. Thank you! It is something we always do. There are only two of us and (as much as we would like to) we don’t eat a whole batch of cookies in one day. Cookies always taste better fresh from the oven! X
