Chewy Chocolate Orange Cookies

A quick and easy Friday treat for the kids (and adults!) for when they get home from school. The recipe takes 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes to bake, then you just have to resist tucking in until the kids get home. They taste like a Terry's Chocolate Orange, which can only be a good thing in my book. 

I hope everyone enjoys the weekend despite the weather - I think plenty of cooking and baking will be on the cards.

  1. Those sound divine Beth, there is nothing I like more than a chewy cookie and one that tastes of a chocolate orange, well wow! I will be trying these.

  2. These sound much much nicer than a Terry's chocolate orange.

  3. I'm printing this recipe as I write, I love homemade cookies and bake them on a regular basis I'm definitely trying these.

  4. They sound great - I love chocolate and orange together so these sound fab - I bet Green and Blacks Maya chocolate would work well here too. Perfect as a treat!

  5. 20 minutes in total to make sounds fabulous in my book. And these Chewy Chocolate Orange Cookies sound and look scrummy, my gob is watering just by looking at them.

  6. Chocolate and Orange!! My absolute fave...going to be trying these out very soon :D

  7. just tried those this evening.......... WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake: An Alternative Christmas Cake

Every year I make a Christmas cake and every year I'm the one that ends up eating the thing. So in a concerted effort to maintain my waistline, this year, instead of a traditional Christmas cake I'll be making an alternative Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake to enjoy. After all, who can resist the quintessentially festive chocolate orange combo?

The beauty of a biscuit cake is that it can be made 3 or 4 days ahead and left in the fridge until you want to serve it (or a cold garage if the fridge is bursting at the seams!). All you need is a dollop of clotted cream and you're sorted. If this is being made for an entirely adult audience I would use all dark chocolate in the topping.

TIPS FOR MAKING A FESTIVE BISCUIT CAKEAdd some fudge pieces or nuts if that's what your family likesDecorate with festive sprinklesIf you prefer make in a large square baking tin and cut into slices
