Spiced Chocolate Orange Crinkle Cookies Recipe

Spiced Chocolate Orange Crinkle Cookies recipe


These cookies are like little chocolate mountains with cracks. They are sweet with a hint of spice and orange. You mix chocolate, flour, and other things to make a soft dough. Then you bake them until they look wrinkly and yummy!


150 g all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
120 g unsalted butter
200 g 60% dark chocolate
3 tbsp cocoa powder
90 g granulated sugar
125 g light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tbsp orange zest
1 tsp vanilla extract
Powdered sugar for dusting


Preheat your oven to 160°C (320°F) with the fan on. Line two baking trays with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and salt. Set aside.
Chop the dark chocolate into small pieces. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Remove from heat and stir in the cocoa powder and chocolate until fully melted. Mix in the orange zest. Allow to cool slightly.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the granulated sugar, light brown sugar, vanilla extract, and eggs. Whisk for about 5 minutes until the mixture is pale and fluffy.
Gently fold the cooled chocolate mixture into the egg mixture until just combined.
Sift in the dry ingredients and fold until no streaks remain and a soft dough forms.
Using a tablespoon, scoop out the dough and roll into balls. Coat each ball in powdered sugar and place on the prepared baking trays, leaving space between each cookie.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the cookies have a domed appearance and the surface is shiny with cracks.
Allow the cookies to cool on the trays for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
