Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Using an electric mixer, cream the sugar, butter and salt at high speed until well blended, about 3 minutes. Scrape down the bowl, add the egg, egg white and vanilla and beat for 1 minute.

  • Beat in the cocoa at medium speed until thoroughly blended. Add the flour, baking powder, orange peel and white chocolate chips and mix at low speed just until incorporated.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees . Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment.

  • Roll the dough into 1 1/2-inch balls; roll in confectioners sugar. Place on the prepared pans, spacing evenly. Bake 1 pan at a time (refrigerate the other pan) until the centers are springy, about 15 minutes. Let cool on the pans for 2 minutes; transfer to racks to cool completely.

  • Place two-thirds of the semisweet chocolate in a microwavable bowl. Microwave at medium power for five to six 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth. Add the remaining chocolate; let stand for 5 minutes. Stir until smooth.

  • Dollop some chocolate on top of each cookie; sprinkle with orange peel. Let stand until set, about 1 hour.
