Chocolate Orange Love Heart Biscuits

Chocolate Orange Love Heart Biscuits - Fab Food 4 All

Valentine’s Day will soon be upon us so to mark the occasion I thought it would be nice to come up with a recipe that you can make to share with your loved one or the whole family. Better still get the kids involved with some mixing and chocolate dipping. Nothing says “I love you” more than a handmade gift or some home baked goodies! These Chocolate Orange Love Heart Biscuits are perfect to serve after a romantic meal with a cup of coffee (or in my case tea) or why not serve them with ice cream for that extra special touch?

When my daughter got home from school I gave her a biscuit and her verdict was “I could eat all of these, the chocolate goes really well with the orange flavour”! My hubby and son also sang their praises. It’s a good job the recipe makes about 52 biscuits as they keep really well so you can enjoy them long after Valentine’s Day!

You will need a cookie press to make these biscuits, you can read more about the Oxo Cookie Press and another of my cookie recipes here I have here! This biscuit dough was perfectly suited to the cookie press as there were no mishaps and all the heart shapes formed perfectly!

For more Valentines inspiration why don’t you check out my Budget Valentine Chocolates or these kid’s Valentine Cookie Pops from Taming Twins!

As these biscuits are much cheaper to make than any you can buy (plus I used a pack of reduced butter I’d had in my fridge for ages) I am entering Credit Crunch Munch which I run with Fuss Free Flavours and is being hosted this month by the lovely Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary. I’m also entering the Biscuit Barrel Challenge over at The Lass in the Apron which is also hosted by I’d Much Rather Bake Than. Finally Love is in the Air over at the Treat Petite Challenge run by Cakey Boi and co-host Baking Explorer.

  23. Laura@howtocookgoodfood

    I have always loved chocolate with orange, a lovely cookie idea and I bet they smell amazing when cooking. Dipping them in chocolate is an added bonus, they would disappear very quickly in our house!

  31. Angela - Garden Tea Cakes and Me

    I do like a nice citrus biscuit, though I am guilty of ignoring them in favour of a chocolate or peanut butter cookie. These look a nice thin buttery biscuit 🙂

    Angela

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Angela, best of both worlds here then:-)

  32. Glamorous Glutton

    These are lovely and the mix of flour and cornflour means they would be really light. GG

    1. Camilla

      Thank you, yes they are light and crispy:-)

  33. Choclette

    These look so pretty Camilla and really quite delectable. Trying to pin it to my Romance board, but not having much success. Will try again later.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you so much Choclette. I’m puzzled as to why you can’t pin?
