Sharing is caring!

Just the BEST Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cookies ever! These are so good you won’t want eating them to end!

Our Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cookies are outrageously delicious! Buttery, chocolatey and melt in the mouth.

This is just our best homemade chocolate orange cookies recipe that we’ve ever cooked up!

There’s something utterly gorgeous about tossing handfuls of chopped up Terry’s chocolate orange into cookie dough.

Honestly the delicious warm orange cookies scent as these little treats are baking is mouthwatering and the taste well… just try them yourself and see.

This is a lovely recipe for using up any leftover Terry’s Chocolate Orange Easter egg…. if such a thing exists.

But if your home is like mine, you’ll need to buy the Terry’s chocolate oranges just for this orange cookie recipe, and a spare one to eat whilst the cookies bake…

And they make a gorgeous Christmas chocolate orange biscuit recipe too. You could even gift these orange cookies – once they’re cool just wrap them in greaseproof paper, then a layer of pretty festive printed tissue paper and finally a lovely gift box with little tag.

There’s something extra lovely about receiving a hand baked gift.

Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cookies Ingredients

Terry's Chocolate Orange Cookies ingredients - small bowl of self raising flour, small bowl of caster sugar, small bowl of maple syrup, wooden bowl with a block of butter in it and a smashed up Terry's chocolate orange on top of the orange foil

To make our Terry’s Chocolate Orange Recipe you will need…

  • 100g caster sugar – use caster sugar or you can use soft brown sugar if you prefer.
  • 100g soft butter – use unsalted butter at room temperature – don’t use salted it will ruin the flavour of the cookies.
  • 1tbs maple syrup – be sure to use real maple syrup, don’t use one of the flavoured mixed syrup blends.
  • 1/2 a 175g Terry’s Chocolate Orange – I make these with the milk chocolate orange but feel free to use the dark chocolate or white chocolate orange if you prefer that.
  • 170g self raising flour
