Chewy Chocolate Orange Cookies

These chewy chocolate orange cookies are perfect for an after school snack for kids. Great with a glass of cold milk.

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

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

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

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

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