[Make This!] Chocolate Orange Biscuits

gb
Chocolate Orange Biscuits are a perfect treat for a Valentine’s Day breakfast! They’re also super easy to make. I love using Green & Black chocolates because they are high quality, organic and fair trade. Let’s get baking!

Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup of coarsely chopped dark Green & Black chocolate.
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
6 Tbs. margarine (or butter)
3/4 cup of 2% milk
Zest of 1 orange

1.Heat the oven on to 400 F
2.Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, orange zest and half of the chocolate together in a large mixing bowl.
3. Add in the margarine using a pastry blender or using two knives. Mix until the mixture forms coarse crumbs.
4. Make a well in the middle of the mixture and pour in the milk.
5. Using a fork, stir together the mixture until it forms a shaggy dough.
7. Turn out the dough onto a floured surface. Knead just until the dough comes together.
8. Pat the dough into a round shape 3/4″ thick.
9. Use a knife or cookie cutter to create a heart shape and transfer to baking tray.
10. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
11. In a small bowl, melt the remaining chocolate and drizzle on the tops of the biscuit
12. Enjoy!

I like to eat food, and occasionally I like to make food, but I wouldn’t call myself a chef. When I had the chance to participate in a one of a kind cook off challenge, I couldn’t turn it down!

Florida Keys Chef Bobby Stoky flew into Toronto to whip several food bloggers, recipe writers and influences into shape in a fun cook-off. We didn’t know what we would be cooking, but I had a hunch on dessert that proved to be correct! We created two dishes, Onion-Encrusted Yellowtail with Mango Salsa and Key Lime Pie. (more…)

In December, my goal in life is basically to consume as many cookies (particularly shortbread) as I can. I often arrange cookie swaps to fuel this goal and to acquire lots of cookies to share with my family and friends! It’s good to have a go to recipe that you can whip up easily and modify as needed so that you can bake at the drop of a dime!

I found a recipe like that, and I’m going to share the magic of Becel Anything Goes Cookie Dough. The recipe is super simple. From one dough, you can get an endless array of cookies. With the addition of a few ingredients, this dough can become gingerbread, apple spice and more! This make it the perfect recipe to have on hand for cookie swaps and last minute parties. (more…)

Last weekend I spent a beautiful day hanging out in Woolwich, Ontario baking up a storm with Canola Eat Well. It was so much fun! Although I’m no stranger to baking, I must admit that I had never given much thought as to where canola comes from, so I was happy to have the chance to get up close and personal with it. Canola is grown by over 43,000 family farmers on the Canadian Prairies. Chefs and cooks choose canola oil because it’s local, healthy, versatile. (more…)
