A fluffy, creamy, orange and chocolate dream! I found this recipe in Family Circle Magazine in 1983 and I have made it every year since. I have tried different chocolate morsels and they all work great. Special dark chocolate is my favorite. They are a nice change from regular chocolate chip cookies.

"the recipe was very light. I made it with butter instead of shortening and I added 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Also, using mini choc chips didnt weigh down the cookie and I used about 1 tbsp of orange zest. Depending on the size of the spoon you are using, it also didnt make 6 dozen, it only made 3.5. Not a problem, just let others know."
