Chocolate Orange Bites

Makes 20

This cakey/cookie hybrid is easy to make, and they taste amazing. The orange really comes through, and it goes so well with just the tiniest bit of chocolate. The recipe is also easily adaptable if you want to add any other flavours to the mix, or bake half/double the amount!

Chewy on the outside, spongey on the inside!

Ingredients

  • 220g softened butter
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 320g plain flour
  • Juice of one squeezed orange
  • Grated rind of one orange
  • 60g Chocolate chips

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180.
  2. Grate the rind of one orange into a bowl, then cut the orange in two and squeeze all the juice in with the rind. Set it aside for now.
  3. Mix together the butter and sugar until creamy.
  4. Add the egg yolk, chocolate chips, orange rind and juice, then combine it all together. It will look pretty thin and runny, but don’t worry, because it’ll thicken up with the next step.
  5. Sift over the flour and stir until there are no lumps. It should be thick enough to stand a spoon in.
  6. Transfer your mixture to a baking tray – about one tablespoon per bite should be the right size. Flatten them out a little, and make sure there’s about 4cm between each one.
  7. Bake for 18 minutes or until golden coloured.
