I love the combination of orange and chocolate, it just works so well! These orange chocolate chip cookies are simply delicious
These cookies are the perfect combination, lots of chocolate chips, a soft and crunchy cookie with a hint of orangey goodness.
This recipe is really easy to make using the basics from the pantry and one orange – cannot get much easier than that! My daughter Caitlyn loves baking these cookies. They have lots of easy techniques, from creaming the butter and sugar to zesting the orange. Makes for a fun time in the kitchen!
These are sooooooo good, of the first batch only about 10 made it to the cookie jar – the smell and taste ensured the visitors ate them warm straight from the oven! This recipe makes a lovely big batch, at least 30 cookies so if you do wish to double the recipe, you can freeze half of it for another day. Then you can be only moments away from freshly baked cookies at any time!
The texture of these biscuits is unlike many of my other cookie recipes. They are softer in the middle, more cakey than the chewy cookies you find such as this recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies but they are just lovely. The crunch is provided by the outside and the chocolate chips themselves. The zest is a lovely contrast to the flavours. A large orange is best, the more zest the better!
I hope this becomes a firm favourite in your home. Be sure to let me know what you think. You can find lots more cookie and biscuit recipes here that will tempt everyone!

Great recipe. I made them this morning four our card class this afternoon.
Hi Anna, this recipe gets a 10/10 vote in my house. It is a very soft mixture which I find easiest to spoon onto the baking tray and tidy up carefully with a fork dipped in caster sugar. Great flavour combo and texture, also freezes very well.
I made these today, and they were delicious! I have shared the recipe on my page.
I made these Orange 7 Choc Chip biscuits to take into work. They are absolutly delicious and such a simple recipe. They also made my little cottage smell amazing as they were cooking.
Thanks for such a great recipe.

I have just made this recipe and the biscuits look and smell divine! Thanks for sharing
Hi Anna I love dark chocolate and orange together so gave these a go! The mixture was very wet so was hard to roll in to balls therefore not nice looking biscuits like yours, was tempted to add more flour but didn’t want to ruin the consistency of the biscuit?? the biscuit itself tasted amazing though with the hint of orange, thank you ?
I’m sorry to hear that, I wonder what went wrong there? It’s not usually a wet mixture. Was the butter melted or soft? Hard to know without being there but I hope they were still tasty. ☺️
How delicious!! Like a jaffa in a cookie!!! I will definitely have to make a batch of these for a change from my usual choc chip cookies. Thank you for linking up with our Fabulous Foodie Fridays party! xx
You know I never thought of making orange chocolate chip cookies before, but I bet they’re amazing. I’ve always loved orange flavored chocolates so I’ll have to try these out :).
