• 100g Butter (softened)

  • 1 Egg
  • 150g Self Raising Flour
  • 40g Cocoa Powder (the good stuff)
  • 1/2tsp Baking Powder
  • 150g Chopped Chocolate (I used a combination of dark chocolate with orange and dark chocolate 70%)

    Preheat the oven to 180c/350f.
  • STEP 2
    In a bowl, mix the butter and sugar until well combined and light.

    Now add the orange essence and egg.
  • STEP 4
    Weigh out the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder into a bowl.

    Sieve the dry ingredients a little at a time into the wet and mix until well combined.
  • STEP 6
    Fold in your chopped chocolate pieces.
  • STEP 7
    Spoon the mixture onto a baking sheet on a baking tray. I used a large dollop tablespoon for each cookie.

    Bake for 12 minutes, then remove and allow to cook on a wire rack.
