Chocolate Orange Slice Cookies mimic orange slices dipped in chocolate. Bright, tangy citrusy flavor comes from orange Kool-Aid mix baked into the cookies! Perfect cookie recipe for cookie exchanges and during the holidays.
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.

This handsome kid is my middle child in every sense of the word. Middle son, middle child and plenty of middle child syndrome, ha! I try and give him a little extra attention to compensate and it seems to be doing the trick. In the last year he’s grown and matured to the point where not only do I love him as my child, but I really, really like him too! He’s so fun to be around and always has me laughing. He’s so talented in so many ways too. I can’t wait to see what he does as he continues to grow.
