  • 125g dark chocolate (I use Bournville)
  • 150g plain flour
  • 30g cocoa powder, sieved
  • 1 tsp bi carb
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 125g butter, softened
  • 75g light brown sugar
  • 50g caster sugar
  • finely grated zest of 1 large orange
  • 1 egg, cold
  • 200g white chocolate, cut into chunks (or use chips)


    1. Pre-heat the oven to 170°C/gas mark 3 and line a large baking sheet. Melt the dark chocolate in a microwave in 30 second blasts or over a pan of barely simmering water until melted. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
    2. Place the flour, cocoa, bi carb and salt into a bowl and set aside. Cream the butter and sugars together in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add the cooled melted chocolate and beat to combine.
    3. Beat in the orange zest and egg, followed by the flour mixture. Once combined stir in the chocolate chunks.
    4. Roll the dough into small or large balls, depending on what size you want your cookies, and place on the baking tray. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle of a cookie comes out clean.
    5. Once baked, remove from the oven and leave the cookies to cool on the tray for 5-10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool.

Just made these for a special event tomorrow and they turned out perfectly! Very simple recipe. Recommended! I did end up using tangerine zest instead of orange as there were no oranges in our Tesco express but it worked fine, if anything the subtlety of the tangerine may have worked even better.

These biscuits are delicious. A big hit with the men in my house!. Easy to make. I added dark chocolate chips instead of white and they worked just as well.

Best cookies I've made so far in my cookie baking career :) IMHO better than Mary Berry's chocolate chip cookies

I did double dark chocolate instead of white and it worked really, really well. Really chocolatey and easy to get right.
