CHOCOLATE ORANGE COOKIES

Chocolate Orange Cookies mimic orange slices dipped in chocolate. Bright, tangy citrusy flavor comes from orange Kool-Aid mix baked into the cookies!

Chocolate Orange Cookies are a fun, unique cookie recipe that everyone loved! Orange Kool-Aid is baked into a traditional cookie recipe, providing a bright orange flavor. Instead of scooping out the dough, roll into large balls, dip in orange sugar and cut wedges. You can bake the cute cookies and enjoy them, but I dipped them partially in chocolate for a special treat.
