Yes, I know, another chocolate orange combination but it might be my favorite yet. This is a fantastic chewy, crispy edged cookie made from a rich cocoa dough with dark chocolate chips and fragrant orange zest. For fans of the popular "Terry's Chocolate Orange", this is YOUR cookie! TRUST ME!

  • 1 ¼ cups butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • zest of one large orange, finely minced

Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the creamed mixture and beat until well combined.

Sift together the cocoa, flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture along with


  • 1 ½ cups chocolate chips
  • zest of one large orange, finely minced

Mix well until a dough forms.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Dough must be very cold when it goes in the oven.
Roll into 1 inch balls. Place about 2 inches apart on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for about 8-10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for several minutes before placing them on a wire rack to cool completely.

You say these are freezer cookies. Does that mean I can keep the dough in the freezer for a while before baking them? Or that they are good when kept in the freezer after baking?
I want to make these soon!

I'd say overbaked. Try a minute or so less.

These are so good!!! Just the right amount of orange flavour. I used white chocolate chips in place of regular or dark ones. I will be adding this recipe to my cookie roster.
