My delicious chocolate orange cookies recipe is chewy, gooey and absolutely heavenly! Just perfect if you’re a fan of Terry’s chocolate orange.
The other day, whilst shopping for groceries, I was hovering around the bakery in the supermarket for inspiration. And I caught a glimpse of some chocolate orange cookies. My first thought: 🤤🤤🤤 My second: I could make those!
The result of this little distraction whilst shopping resulted in these little gems I’m sharing with you today. See, even grocery shopping can be dangerous! 😘
These cookies are perfectly gooey and chewy, full of rich chocolate orange yumminess I just can’t get enough of. For me, this is truly a little piece of (chocolate orange) cookie heaven. But if chocolate orange isn’t your thing, I have a range of offerings I’m sure you’ll enjoy, from triple chocolate cookies and NYC style Biscoff cookies to lemon drizzle and tiramisu cookies.
Is my chocolate orange cookies recipe that simple?
It actually couldn’t be simpler! Melt your butter, whisk in sugar then vanilla and egg. Sift in your dry ingredients, grate in orange zest and mix again until almost combined. Finally, tip in the chopped chocolate and give it a final stir to mix. Then scoop into balls onto a baking sheet and pop in your fridge for at least a couple of hours to firm up (I leave them overnight). When you’re ready, just bake, drizzle and enjoy!
I actually like to freeze my cookie dough balls (once chilled, so they don’t stick together) in a container. This way, if the hankering for cookies every gets me, all I need to do is turn on my oven and bake a cookie ball (adding a couple of extra minutes on the baking time), and my craving is satisfied!
You could absolutely take or leave the drizzle decoration on top, that part is totally up to you. Or you could top the cookies with a little extra chocolate orange chunks/pieces a minute or two towards the end of baking if you prefer. The more melty chocolate the better, right?
And one final tip from me: it’s super important to leave these cookies to cool down a little before you start scoffing them. Molten chocolate is painful! Trust me, my impatience has led me to speak from experience 🤪
Anyways, here you have it. Enjoy these beauties and as always thanks for stopping by!
Happy baking, my friends!
