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!

- 1 cup chocolate dipping/coating wafers
In a mixing bowl combine powdered sugar, butter, dry drink mix and the egg. Mix until smooth.

divide dough into 8 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and roll each ball in the orange sugar until coated, pressing into dough if needed. Chill balls for 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Slice each ball into 8 wedges. Place wedges on lined baking sheet, fitting 24-28 wedges on a sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool cookies completely.
Melt dipping chocolate in a glass bowl for 1 minute in the microwave. Add additional time in 15 second increments until smooth and melted. (Do not overheat!)
