Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

I recently got lovely feedback about my double chocolate chip cookies. It delights me to know that people are enjoying my recipes. Please do share any feedback by leaving a comment under the recipe or messaging me on social media.

After hearing that my recipe for double chocolate chip cookies was such a hit, I decided to work on another variation. Orange chocolate chip cookies using Free’ist no-added sugar dark chocolate with orange.

Just as with my double chocolate chip cookies, these orange chocolate chips cookies are delicious dipped into a glass of cold milk. Although I would always prefer to dip mine into a mug of hot, milky coffee.

Hope you enjoy!
