Chocolate Orange Cookies

I posted a photo of these cookies on my Instagram and asked if you wanted the recipe, and the answer was an outstanding yes! So here it is, my recipe for delicious Chocolate Orange Cookies. These are the kind of cookies that are crispy around the edge and soft in the centre, basically the perfect cookie in my opinion! There’s plenty of chocolate orange flavour in the cookie dough, as well as cocoa powder and orange extract, I also mixed in some melted chocolate orange. Each one has it’s own segment of Terry’s chocolate orange in the centre too, which is not only incredibly tasty, but it’s such an easy decoration for these cookies too!

How to make Chocolate Orange Cookies…

To make the cookie dough, I mixed together butter and caster sugar. Then I mixed in orange extract and egg.

Next, I mixed in plain flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Finally, I stirred in some melted Terry’s chocolate orange.

I rolled the dough into balls with my hands, then flattened them a little and placed them onto lined baking trays. I baked them for 10 minutes, then took them out and put a segment of Terry’s chocolate orange on top, and then put them back in the oven for 2-3 minutes.

Tips for making the Chocolate Orange Cookies:

  • If you can’t hold of any orange extract, you can use the zest of one orange instead.
  • You will need 1 whole Terry’s chocolate orange for this recipe.
  • These cookies freeze great, I seal them in a freezer bag and then either defrost at room temperature or pop in the microwave for 30 seconds on high.
  • If you’re wondering how all of my cookies look exactly the same. Well, I am a bit OCD when it comes to cookies! I like them to be the same size, so I weigh the cookie dough and divide by 16, then I weigh each ball of cookie dough to make sure they’re the same size. You don’t have to do this, but it is rather satisfying, if you like that kind of thing!

    Hi thanks for the lovely recipe . I did bake these cookies and the result is a lovely soft cookie . The cookie isn’t crisp is that’s how they meant to be ? I baked it for 11 – 11 and half minutes . Pls do let me know .

    1. Hi Unya, no they are not meant to be crisp. They have slighty crispy/crunchy edges but the rest of the cookie is soft. I hope you enjoyed them!
