Line two large Baking Sheets with parchment paper and leave to the side.
Cream together the Butter and Sugar until light and fluffy.
Add in the Plain Flour, Cocoa Powder and Orange and mix together till a dough is formed!
Add in the chopped Terry's Chocolate Orange and mix through.
Dust your work surface with some spare flour and roll your dough out till its 1cm thick.
Using a round 6cm cutter, cut the cookies out and put onto the baking tray. Re-roll and continue till you have used up all the dough! (It won’t take much kneading to re roll!)
Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes!
Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan, and bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes until baked through (they’ll be relatively firm)
Take the trays out of the oven and sprinkle on some caster sugar and leave the cookies to cool on the trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to cool completely on a wire rack.
Drizzle over some melted Terry's Chocolate Orange, and add on a segment each if you fancy - Enjoy!
You can easily use a different type of chocolate if you wanted, just use the same amount, or you will get less cookies!
Also, you could not use any chocolate at all, but you’d get even less cookies then!
The amount you can make from this depends on how accurately you roll out the dough, and how big your cutter is... so I roll mine to 1cm thickness, and with a 6cm round cutter I got about 16-18 cookies, and its perfect.
You can swap the zest for a teaspoon of orange extract!
