Gluten Free Chocolate Orange Halloween Cookies

Gluten Free Chocolate Orange Halloween Cookies

Serves: 10 cookies Prep Time: 10 mins + 10 mins for decoration

Cooking Time: 16-18 mins

What you need:

For the cookies

200g Delicious Alchemy Oaty Cookie Mix

30ml water

75g unsalted dairy free butter

Zest of 1 large orange

2 drops of orange flavouring or the juice of 1 quarter of an orange

For the icing

100g dark vegan chocolate

Icing pens for decoration

What you do:

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan. Line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper. Pour the cookie mix into a bowl. In a pan, melt together the butter (or dairy free alternative) and water. Once melted, add to the cookie mix and mix well with a spatula.

Step 2

Add the zest of 1 orange. Then add either 2 drops of orange flavouring or cut the orange into 4 and squeeze the juice of one quarter into the mixture.

Step 3

Divide the mixture into 10 pieces, rolling each one into a ball using the palm of your hands. Place onto the lined baking tray and press down until each cookie is round in shape and 5mm thick. Bake for 16-18 minutes until golden.

Step 4

Leave to cool for 2 minutes on the tray before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely. Whilst the cookies are cooling, melt the chocolate over the hob and dip one side of each cookie in the chocolate then leave to set. Once they have set, use your icing pens to decorate any way you wish!
