Festive Chocolate Orange Cookies

This recipe for Chocolate Orange Snaps by Weelicious is one of my family’s favorites. This year we didn’t want to wait until the holidays to enjoy them, so we made them early… Halloween style!

Freshly grated orange zest adds a wonderful hint of flavor to these not-overly-sweet chocolate cookies.

The cookie dough does not have to be refrigerator prior to rolling which is a great time saver!

So often recipes suggest rolling dough out between two sheets of parchment paper, but waxed paper actually works much better.

Witch hats provided decorating inspiration.

We also made some spooky ghosts with miniature marshmallow/chocolate chip eyes!

The girls proudly delivered some of the cookies to our neighbors and we polished off the rest of them. πŸ™‚

    How old are your girls? I can’t wait until my kid(s) can start helping out in the kitchen… maybe that will give me an incentive to make stuff πŸ™‚

  3. Steph, that looks so great, I really have to give it a try with my lil neighbour kids. Its so much fun to bake and decorate with lil ones. Thanks for sharing the great recipe.
