Terry's Chocolate Orange Cookies

Ok I've been having a real craving for making cookies recently, they're quick and pretty easy to make and there's no need to wait for cooling before frosting etc etc..well not these type of cookies anyway. I love Terry's Chocolate Orange chocolate and I thought to put chunks of it in chocolate cookies would be sooo goood. Ok so now comes the big question..cookies..hard and crunchy or soft and chewy? To me it's all about the soft and chewy, there's nothing worse than a hard crunchy cookie that breaks your teeth, even when I get the shop bought ones I'll open the packet and leave them out in the air for a bit to allow them to soften!! Anyway these cookies were pretty good, apart from a warning in advance they spread out loadssss during baking..which gave me more a slab of cookie rather than individual cookies, so just broke bits off that..although on one I did actually manage to get a couple of round cookies!! Woo.

Ingredients Needed

Beating all the ingredients together

Think I made the cookies a bit too big...
