Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cookies!

Delicious Moist & Crunchy Cookies full to the brim with chunks of Terry’s Chocolate Orange – heavenly Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cookies!

I have ALWAYS adored Chocolate + Orange flavouring together – especially Terry’s Chocolate Orange – it sounds like an odd combination at first if you haven’t tried it, but once you have, you will never forget it! Literally my favourite chocolate! When I was little, I would eat at least 3 a week (I realise this is bad, but I ate plenty of healthy stuff too!!).

I have always baked big cakes and used chocolate orange, and then cupcakes as well – but when I went to the supermarket with my boyfriend recently and he picked up a bag of Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cookies to buy, I realised I might as well bake them at home myself so I know exactly what is in then, and sometimes it works out much cheaper! – Turn out this is the best decision I have ever made.

Seriously though, I know you all love and adore Terry’s Chocolate Orange – hence the love for the No-Bake Chocolate Orange Cheesecake that I posted a few months ago – my second most popular recipe on my blog! These cookies are the perfect combination of crunchy edges and gooey delicious centre – its a winner all round!

These cookies are always perfect to bake around Christmas time, or when you are just craving something utterly delicious. The perfect part about them is that the oils in the Chocolate Orange that create the flavouring, makes the cookie bake perfectly every single time – I have honestly never had a problem with these! Enjoy!

These are the sort of cookies that you will want to bake over and over, partly because they’re just so damn easy to bake. Honestly, cream the butter and sugars, whack in the egg, whack in the dry ingredients, shove in all the chocolate orange ever, and bake. Most other recipes I’ve seen require chilling first, and these beauties don’t need it.

Not needing chilling means you can get to my favourite cookies ever, quicker. Honestly, these are genuinely my favourite cookie recipe I have, partly because of the Terry’s Chocolate Orange obsession I have going on, but that’s not entirely it. I genuinely just think the actual cookie is insane! It’s such a wonderful mix of chewy, gooey, and delicious. If you bake it for longer, it’ll get crunchy too!

This recipe has been on my blog for quuuuite a while now, and as I write this after updating the images in November 2018, it remains to be my favourite cookie. I know the recipe off by heart and have experimented with it a few times, resulting in recipes such as my Toblerone Cookies, and my M&M Cookies. I’ve also created a Cookie Bar version of these because I just adore them THAT much.

Honestly, imagine baking these, and serving them with a scoop of my Terry’s Chocolate Orange Ice Cream, or having a Terry’s themed party and devouring these and my other 15 themed recipes as well. Maybe I love it too much, but honestly, if you try these you will understand my pure and utter love. Enjoy the recipe!

Author: Jane's Patisserie


  • 125 g Unsalted Butter
  • 100 g Granulated Sugar
  • 100 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Medium Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract (optional)
  • 25 g Cocoa Powder
  • 175 g Self Raising Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • Zest of 1 Large Orange (or 1tsp orange extract)
  • 250 g Terry's Chocolate Orange (chopped)
  • 16 Segments Terry's Chocolate Orange


  • Preheat your oven to 190C/180C Fan/375F and line three baking trays with parchment paper
  • Mix together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy and thoroughly combined – I often use an electric mixer for this bit as it makes it so much easier and combines the ingredients very well – but good ol’ manpower will work too!
  • Add the vanilla essence and the beaten egg, and mix again briefly. 
  • Add the cocoa powder, flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, salt and orange and mix until a thick paste/cookie dough is formed. (Or add it all in together!)
  • Chop the chocolate orange pieces and add to the mixture and fold through
  • Spoon the mixture onto the trays and make sure they are suitable spread out so they stay separate! (I usually fit 6 on each tray to be safe) I also use a cookie dropper/ice cream scoop to make them identical sizes.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes – remove quickly and add a segment to each cookie, and then bake for another 1-2 minutes. 
  • Once baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before gobbling up otherwise you might burn yourself on molten chocolate!


  • You don’t have to add the chocolate pieces on top, you can include it all in the dough, but I love having melted bits of chocolate on top of a cookie – especially if I am serving them warm with a drink, such a gooey chocolate treat!
  • If you don’t have Terry’s chocolate orange where you are, you could try using milk chocolate with a bit more orange zest, or even a bit of orange flavouring which I often do!
  • These cookies will last for 4-5 days+, but usually, get eaten before that.

    Made these cookies today and they turned out brilliantly! A perfect balance of crunchy around the edge and gooey in the middle. I used half self-raising and half plain flour (only because I ran out) and didn’t use the bicarbonate of soda (I didn’t have it) and they still turned out great. I did squish them down a bit too which made them into a perfect shape. Thank you for a fab recipe!

    Any advice for me as mines flattened out a bit more and didn’t look at chunky as yours. They look more smooth and flat? I used an ice cream scoop and followed the recipe and I have an oven thermometer so temperature was correct. I think I maybe should have chilled them a bit first and they might not have spread so much? Not sure, any ideas? They’re cooling down just now and I know they will taste good but I’d like them to look better!

    • Jane's Patisserie
      June 14, 2020 at 4:56 pm

      Hiya – this depends as brands of ingredients and how you’ve mixed it can take an effect! I personally never chill this dough, but you can definitely try it if you want! x

    I was craving something chocolatey and orange and I came across this recipe, I was a bit skeptical because not many times my baking goes right.

    So then I got my ingredients ready but then I realised a) there wasn’t enough butter and b) I didn’t have brown sugar I only had demara sugar. So once again I was a bit worried about them however I went with my gut instincts and just went for it.

    I made the mixture, (doubled it) and it was kinda cake like, thick cake batter but I let it chill in the fridge for around 20/30 minutes and then I took them out and put them straight in the oven. They rised a lot more than going wider but I wasn’t too bothered about it. I then took them out and quickly put choc pieces on top and let go in the oven for 1/2 minutes more. They were PERFECT.

    You could really taste the orange in it and I was worried I didn’t put enough zest in, but it was fine!! They taste SO GOOD, I can’t believe they came out so good. My family loved them and were shocked I made something right for once ahah.

    Thank you for this recipe, Jane 🙂

    Followed the recipe exactly, but they didn’t flatten out, they looked more like bulky cookies, rather then chewy. Still very tasty but do you recommend anything to help them be more chewy and flatter?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      May 31, 2020 at 12:28 pm

      These cookies are meant to be soft in the middle and aren’t completely chewy – so if you want them flatter, you will want to squish them before baking rather than leaving in a scoop shape!

    Hi there, this recipe looks great…should the brown sugar be the soft brown variety? Could I use caster sugar instead of granulated? Thanks

    • Jane's Patisserie
      May 19, 2020 at 8:16 am

      I generally don’t recommend caster sugar for cookies as it can make them spread more and have a different texture, but the light brown is soft yes.

    I baked these for my boyfriend on valentine’s day as we weren’t doing gifts but thought i’d make something special! I loved these and he loved them! hands down the best cookie recipe I have used to date!! Recreated them with just a chopped up dark chocolate bar and it is also incredibly delicious!!! Thank you for this!! x

    Hii Jane. This is my absolute favourite recipe from your website! I wanted to make these again but can’t seem to find brown sugar anywhere. Just wondered if using all granulated would make much of a difference? Thanks!

    Hello, 3rd Christmas I’m wanting to make these but am really having issues with the conversion, We use the metric system in Canada and even when I try to google to convert I can have 4 different sites all telling me different measurements. Do you have a converted recipe at all??

    • Jane's Patisserie
      December 19, 2019 at 8:47 am

      Hello – sorry I’m not sure I understand.. the recipe is in grams already, and there is an ounces conversion button on the page as well?

    • Valerie
      December 19, 2019 at 6:23 pm

      Yes I’m looking for measurements in cups not oz or grams….

    These were a real hit with my work colleagues. I quartered the orange for the topping to give more of that gooey chocolate hit! Have wondered about using the mini segments with the exploding candy, but not sure how that will bake?

    Will definitely be making these again, you can’t beat the chocolate orange combination.

    • Jane's Patisserie
      February 17, 2019 at 7:44 pm

      I reckon they might be okay, but some of the explodeyness might disappear?! You could put the segments on top with the candy in?! x

      I’m unsure what you mean as to ‘make it as cookie dough’? Do you mean eat it raw? I wouldn’t recommend that.

    Do you use the Terrys chocolate orange minis or actual chocolate orange in your cookies?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      June 11, 2018 at 5:11 pm

      Whichever I have, they both work perfectly!

    Hi Jane,
    I wanna make these cookies but my kids have werid allergies to cocoa powder so can I just take that out? And will it mean I will end up with a normal beige colour dough?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      June 10, 2018 at 8:43 pm

      Hey! I’ve never tried these without cocoa powder but you would need to replace it with 50g more of the flour, so 225g total. x
