Some people will associate the flavour combination of chocolate orange with Christmas. However in my mind, it's a combination that cannot be restricted to the holiday season.
These cookies are deliciously chocolatey and have a lovely warmth of orange running through.

1tbs Orange Essence (I like it orangey!)
