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