Orange, Chocolate Chunk and Sea Salt Cookies

Orange, Chocolate Chunk and Sea Salt Cookies

Since it’s the holidays I decided to make one of my very favorite cookies, these Orange Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Sea Salt. I have a weakness for the chocolate and orange combination and I wish there were more of it around. I mean the chocolate oranges at Christmas time and the orange jelly sticks just aren’t cutting it for me (I’m not a big fan of either. I wish they offered better quality chocolate for the chocolate oranges and the sticks are just too much for me. I’m probably just too picky, I know). One cookie I do love that is always available though, are those Orange Milanos (one day I’ll get around to making those homemade because they’re amazing, so I can only imagine how good they’d be fresh). These however, are my favorite use of the orange and chocolate combination, because it adds in another of my favorite things, chocolate chip cookies.
