Chocolate Chunk Orange Cookies is an easy cookies recipe made with fresh and juicy Mandarin Oranges, Cocoa Powder and topped with Dark Chocolate Chunks.
So, today, I baked these Chocolate Chunk Orange Cookies. I must tell you. I loved every bite of it. Orange and Dark Chocolate is one of the best combinations. I just love it. So, whenever, I have fresh Oranges at home, I am either baking cookies or cupcakes or muffins with them. I think these juicy Oranges make so much more than just a glass or breakfast juice!
Chocolate Chunk Orange Cookies is one such amazing cookies recipe which I love to bake. It bakes in no time and takes minimal effort.
Orange and Chocolate are one of the most popular fruits and chocolate pairing. And I think there is hardly anyone who does not enjoy orange and chocolate together. What I love about this combo is that Orange has that zesty tint to it and chocolate has a bittersweet flavor, the end product is something so balanced, so exotic and so yummy, that you want more of it 🙂
These Chocolate Chunk Orange Cookies, are made with unsweetened Chocolate Chunks. Doesn't it looks so cute and gourmet 🙂 I love Chocolate Chunk Cookies. If you do not have dark chocolate at home, feel free to make these with Chocolate Chips.
I also added some Cocoa Powder while making the cookie dough. Just a little bit. It gives that wonderful Orange Chocolate flavors to it.
Let's Make Chocolate Chunk Orange Cookies
So, the first step is to cream the butter and sugar. Use a handheld mixer or stand mixer to cream your Butter and Sugar Together.
Next, the step is to make the cookie dough. Let's get out big old daddy of baking - the All-purpose flour.
Mix the flour with some Dark Cocoa Powder, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Orange Juice, Orange Zest, Orange Extract, Yogurt, and Vinegar. Stir everything well to make a soft dough.
Finally, just make small cookie dough balls and place them in the baking tray.
Bake your Cookies at 180C or 350 F for 6 minutes.
After 6 minutes, get your cookies out and press in the dark chocolate chunks into the cookies.
Bake your cookies for another 7 minutes. Allow them to sit in the hot oven for 5 more minutes before you get them out.
So, that's how you can make Chocolate Chunk Orange Cookies at home easily.
