Hello you. Yes, you. I know you can’t take your eyes off me. I’m rich, warm and utterly irresistible, and I’m begging you to just take a bite…I’m certainly not a treat for the faint-hearted.

I really worked to perfect this delicious little cookie recipe last week, a dream come true for any lover of the fragrant, sensual, indulgent combination of dark chocolate and orange. Laced with nutmeg and a little salt, these giant cookies have perfectly crispy edges that give rise to a chewy, soft centre. Served warm, generous chunks of melted dark chocolate flow from each mouthful, as warm, salty crumbs cling to your lips. The undeniable magic in the marriage of salt and chocolate completely seals the deal…these cookies are bound to leave you charmed.

Top tip; refrigerating cookie dough overnight before baking helps the cookies to spread evenly in the oven, giving higher, rounder, chewier cookies!
