Orange Chocolate Pizzelles

Before the Holiday season is gone, I wanted to share this pizzelle recipe with you. It's not the traditional anise pizzelles but rather an orange chocolate recipe. The nice thing about pizzelles is that they keep for quite a while. After the holidays are over you can put a dollop of ice cream on them and some fresh fruit and you have a wow dessert that's real simple to put together.

Orange Chocolate Pizzelles

6 eggs
3 1/2 c. flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 lb. butter, melted
3 tsp. baking powder
zest of one orange
2 T Grand Marnier
1 T vanilla extract

Beat eggs. Add sugar gradually. Beat until smooth. Add melted and cooled butter. Add flavorings: anise, vanilla, orange and lemon. Add flour, cocoa powder and baking powder and add to egg mixture. Dough will be sticky enough to be dropped by teaspoon onto pizzelle pan. Makes 2 at a time baking approximately 30 seconds on iron. Makes 60 to 80 pizzelles per batter.

I used plain old Hersheys but I think if I had dark cocoa it would be even better!

Mmm, pizzelles are the best! I just made a quick batch of chocolate peppermint ones myself. Yours look delicious! :)

pizzelles are so neat--flat and crispy and full of flavor. i like that you used some zesty orange in these--it makes them unique and scrumptious!
