Chocolate Ganche Cookie infused with Orange Juice

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

The Chocolate Ganche Cookie infused with Orange Juice cookie has just the right balance of chocolate with a lingering orange hit on the back of the palate.  These are by far one of my favorite cookies.  The inspiration behind them?  Well, I had a portion of avocado left over after making Key-Lime Pie and some left over chocolate ganache that needed to be used up.  You just never know where inspiration will come from or where it will take you.  I took these cookies to our store and shared them with the employees,  little do they know but they are my taste tester subjects.  Everyone loved the combination of chocolate and orange.  Our friend David,  kept going back for more.  His eyes lite up when he talked about how much he liked them.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw almonds, soaked at least 4 hours
  • 1/3 cup avocado
  • 1/3 cup young Thai coconut meat

  • 1/2 cup raw almond butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate ganache (click here for recipe)
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Preparation:

  • Place almonds in food processor and process till chunky.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and blend until well incorporated.
  • Using a large ice cream scooper, place cookie dough on teflex dehydrator trays.  Flatten with fingers or back of spoon.
  • Sprinkle orange zest on top of the cookie and decorate with pecan.
  • Dehydrate at 145 degrees for 1 hour and then reduce to 105 degrees for approx. 8 hours.

Ouch! Grate the orange not the finger!
