Okay, I know I have said this before, but I love anything chocolate orange! Especially around the holidays. I think the two flavors that come to my mind first when I think of Christmas is chocolate orange and chocolate peppermint. So naturally after realizing that, I didn’t have a chocolate orange cookie recipe I got to work in the kitchen and came up with one. I only add 1 tsp. of orange extract to the cookies. I like the mild orange flavor. I felt that any more was too overpowering. If you like a stronger orange flavor go ahead and add 1 & 1/2 tsp. of orange extract. You might want to make sure to hit the gym before you make these babies. I guarantee you won’t be able to eat just one. These cookies would be perfect for a cookie exchange, neighbor gift, or as a after school snack for the kiddos. After all, what better way to show somebody you love them than with a batch of chocolate orange cookies!
Until next time,
