These delicious chocolate cookies are really indulgent and are packed full of flavours that remind me of Christmas. I realise the name of this recipe is a little vague, however, it contains too many delicious flavours that I associate with Christmas to list in the title!
These cookies are packed full of white chocolate chips, dried cranberries, ginger and orange zest meaning that each bite is just bursting full of festive flavours. They really do just capture the very essence of Christmas for me!
I created these indulgent tasting double chocolate cookies off the back of the success of my Double Chocolate & Raspberry version so you may notice that the recipes are actually very similar. If you enjoy these cookies, you will probably also like those!
I like these chocolate cookies to be packed full of flavour, however, if you prefer your fillings to be more sparse you could just reduce the amount of cranberries, ginger and chocolate chips used to approximately 20 – 25g of each instead. If you feel there are too many flavours going on for you in this recipe then feel free to omit either the orange or ginger. If you wanted to experiment a little more, you could trial adding in nuts, other dried fruit or different types of chocolate.
To make this recipe you will need to use margarine that comes in a hard block otherwise it won’t work and you’ll end up with an oily mess instead of deliciously chewy, soft centred cookies. How many thi recipe makes really depends on the size of the scoop you use but I normally get 6 – 8 cookies from this amount of dough.
Please remember that the dough will spread during the baking process so ensure you spread the dough balls out, you may even need to use two separate baking trays. These chocolate cookies should keep well for up to four days in an airtight container.
