Orange Choc Chip Cookies

Orange Choc Chip CookiesChocolate orange, hands down, has to be one of my all time favourite flavour combinations! There’s just something so special about it, I don’t know what it is but it’s just incredible. And I love it. So there!

So I’m still making my Ultimate Chocolate Cookies but I fancied a change., and I was in the mood for chocolate orange. So! Here is what you will need to make some incredibly addictive, sensationally divine orange choc chip cookies.

  • 160g Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 250g Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 x 100g Bars of Milk Chocolate
  • 1x 100g Bag of Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 220g Soft Light Brown Sugar
  • 110g Caster Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • Zest of 2 Oranges

Put the butter in a small saucepan and heat until melted. (Or melt in the microwave.) Leave to one side.

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda & salt. Mix together and leave to one side.

Chop the milk chocolate bars into chunks & set to one side with the chocolate chips.

Either in a stand mixer or a large bowl with an electric hand whisk – mix together the brown sugar, caster sugar & melted butter until it looks a little something like this…

Ultimate Chocolate Chip CookiesAdd in the egg, the egg yolk & the orange zest and mix until it’s all smooth and blended well. (And by the way, now smells incredible!)

Ultimate Chocolate Chip CookiesNext, in thirds, add the flour to the dough until there are only a couple of spoonfuls left. (Reserve this remaining flour.) Mix until no more flour is visible.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip CookiesThen toss the chocolate chips/chunks through the remaining flour until they are all coated.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip CookiesAdd the chocolate and mix until evenly distributed throughout the dough.

This next step is very important – place the dough into a glass bowl, cover with cling film and put in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours. Overnight is better if you have the time. Chilling the dough completely stops each cookie from spreading too much during baking, giving you a beautiful chunky cookie as opposed to a flat greasy cookie.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip CookiesWhen the dough is ready - preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C.

Using an ice cream scoop, (mine measures approx 5cm diameter x 2.5cm deep) place level scoopfuls of the dough onto a baking tray. I line mine with a silicone baking sheet but you don’t really need to. Make sure to leave room in between each dough ball for spreading.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip CookiesBake in the preheated oven for 10 – 12 minutes. If necessary, turn the tray halfway to ensure an even bake.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip CookiesLeave on the tray for a few minutes to harden slightly then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Orange Choc Chip CookiesAnd that’s how you make the most awesome cookies in all the land! Seriously, they are almost unbearably delicious and so very dangerously addictive. I warn you… make these at your own risk!

I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
