Terry’s Chocolate Orange Chunk Cookies

Because everyone loves Terry’s Chocolate Orange, I think this is a brilliant idea for the Holidays.  It’s one that would be a total hit at any Christmas party too.

This recipe takes inspiration from what we jokingly call at our house, Dead Bunny Cookies. Those are made from using leftover Easter chocolate to make chocolate chunk cookies.

These delicious treats, though, are made from that popular Christmas favourite, the Terry’s Chocolate Orange.

It’s a good idea to plan on making the dough ahead of time and freezing individual portions of cookie dough. Then, you can bake as many or as few as we want  when folks drop by for Christmas visits.

Imagine being served one of these chewy, crispy chocolate orange chunk cookies at a Christmas party. You can safely predict that these cookies would be a major hit at any gathering!

Chocolate Chip Cookies amped up by using chunks of Terry's Chocolate Orange. Amazing!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups roughly chopped Terry's Chocolate Orange

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium sized bowl whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and combine thoroughly.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the sweetened butter. Mix only enough to incorporate flour. Do not over mix. Fold in the chunks of Terry's Chocolate Orange.
  5. It is best to chill this dough very well before baking. This helps to prevent them spreading too much on the pan as they bake.
  6. Form cookies by dropping a rounded tablespoon spoon of dough on the prepared cookie sheet 3 inches apart. I use a large cookie dough scoop which works well too. I like to reserve a few pieces of chocolate to poke into the top of the cookie dough portions which makes them even more visually appealing. Bake until light brown around the edges, about 12-15 minutes, depending on cookie size. For larger cookies like these, I usually only bake about 6 per sheet.
  7. Over baking is the biggest problem with most chocolate chunk cookies. Your oven temperature and the type of cookie sheet you use will vary the baking times considerably. When they are golden brown around the edges is the time to remove them from the oven. Thinking they are a little underdone is probably a good thing. Experiment by baking only a couple of cookies at a time to see what the perfect baking time is for your oven.
  8. Cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool thoroughly.
  9. To freeze individual portions of cookie dough roll the dough in about 1½ inch balls and lay them on a piece of parchment paper or waxed paper on a cookie sheet then press down slightly with the heel of your hand. Freeze them completely before storing them in an airtight container. Separate the layers of cookie dough balls with waxed paper or parchment paper. To bake place the frozen portions on a parchment lined cookie sheet and let them thaw at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before baking.

These turned out well, although not sure how you managed to get 18 ‘large’ cookies out of the mixture, I only got 11 and they were a similar size to your picture.

These cookies are a huge hit! I've made them twice in the last 2 weeks and they're eaten in a flash. This time I made two batches - 1 with milk chocolate orange ball and 1 with dark chocolate orange ball. Thanks so much for the recipe!

I always prefer them with the dark chocolate. These are some pretty addictive cookies, I must agree!
