Recipe: Terry's Chocolate Orange Cookies

I don’t mean to alarm anyone, but there’s only 5 more weeks until Christmas! If you haven’t already had the first annual Terry’s Chocolate Orange, I can only ask – why not? It’s possibly the best Christmas chocolate out there.

I must point out that you need almost a whole chocolate orange to make these babies, so if you have any leftover chocolate orange crumbs, then you may as well keep on licking that foil. Oh wait, maybe that's just me. However, if you fancy doing something different with your beloved Terry’s then I’ve come up with this quick and simple cookie recipe that will leave you saying ‘It’s not Terry’s, it’s mine!’. Sorry that was bad.

I’ve added a squeeze of fresh orange juice into these, and that extra orange kick really makes them feel even more Christmassy and special.

Makes 16-18

75g soft light brown sugar
90g caster sugar
135g Terry's chocolate orange, cut into small chunks
1 egg, beaten
125g unsalted butter, soft
225g self-raising flour
Juice from one small organge (I used a clementine)


1. Preheat the oven to 180c and line two baking trays with greaseproof paper

2. Cream the butter and sugars together, and once creamed add the egg and the juice from the orange, and beat in. 

3. Add the flour and the chocolate chunks and stir until a combined and a stiff dough is formed. 

4. Take parts of the dough and roll into a small ball, around the size of a walnut, squish down the top slightly and place on the baking tray. Leave room for them to expand as they go pretty big! 

5. Bake for 10 minutes until edges are turning golden

6. Allow to cool and firm up slightly on the baking trays before transferring to a wire rack

I hope you enjoy, and as always I would love to know if you make these! They're super easy, and taste much better than shop bought cookies!

    1. Thanks Jasmin! Yes Christmas isn't the same without a chocolate orange!! x

  3. YUM! These sound amazing. I've yet to master the skills of making cookies that don't burn/come out looking and tasting weird. Might just have to give these a go! x

    1. These have the perfect consistency; just in between soft and a bit chewy, I think it's all in the bake time!! x

  4. I always get a Terry's chocolate orange in my stocking so will def be making these boxing day! x

    1. It's a classic stocking filler isn't it? Do let me know if you give them a go! They'd make a lovely Boxing Day treat.

  5. I couldn't bare to use a Terry's chocolate orange so I've just made a different variation using chocolate orange spread instead!xx
