Call out Chocorangas! and your mouth will automatically form into a smile. Rich and tangy these biscuits will make you happy.


Makes 12-16

1/2 cup of vegan margarine (we recommend Vitalite)
1/2 cup of icing sugar
Couple of drops of vanilla extract
1 and ¼ cups of plain flour
¼ cup of cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/8 teaspoon of salt
½ cup of chocolate chips
zest of an orange
1 teaspooon of orange extract

Preheat the oven to 350f/ 180C.
Grease and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Beat the margarine until creamy. Add the vanilla + orange extracts and the icing sugar and beat again.

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, salt and bicarbonate of soda.

Fold this mixture into the margarine mix in two batches. Add a bit more flour if too sticky. Fold in the chocolate chips and orange zest.

Roll out on a floured board into an oblong. Cut into fingers the size of traditional shortbread fingers and prick all over with a fork.
Transfer to the baking tray and bake for 12-14 minutes.
Allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack.
