I have always loved chocolate and orange together. As children, we always used to get a Terry’s Chocolate Orange in our stocking at Christmas I think thats where the obsession might have started. These double Chocolate Orange cookies are seriously melt-in-your-mouth heaven.
I keep seeing chocolate orange everywhere at the minute, Giant Buttons, Orange Twirls, even chocolate orange snowmen. So I decided to make some chocolate orange cookies! These cookies are soft, gooey and best served warm fresh out of the oven.
I adapted this recipe and got inspiration from The Sweetest Menu’s Oreo Cookies
What you will need to make Double chocolate orange cookies:
115 grams of unsalted butter (at room temp!)
90 grams of brown sugar
50 grams of granulated sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 large egg
175 grams of plain flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
40 grams of cocoa powder
90 grams of chopped Terry’s Chocolate Orange (I used a bar, mixed some in and used the rest to decorate)
Preheat oven to 180 (fan ovens) make sure to leave your butter at room temperature for around 15-20 minutes before you start to bake these cookies! Line two baking trays with baking paper. Roughly chop up pieces of Terry’s Chocolate Orange into small chunks and set aside some for the mixture, some for decoration.
In a large mixing bowl, add the butter, sugars, egg and vanilla extract. Use an electric whisk and mix until nicely combined.
Now sift in your flour, baking soda and cocoa powder, I whisked this on a high setting until it formed a slightly gooey dough. Fold in your chopped up Terry’s Chocolate Orange chunks.
Roll the cookie dough into evenly sized balls and pop a few chunks of Chocolate Orange on top. Place on to a baking tray. Now use the back of a tablespoon to flatten the cookies before placing into the oven to bake.
Bake for around 10-11 minutes they will harden slightly upon cooling. I like to eat them just warm when the orange chocolate is melted and gooey.
Let me know if you try this recipe! I will be dropping them off on friends doorsteps so I don’t sit and eat them all!
