3/4 cup dark chocolate chips, chopped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Cream butter and sugar together. Beat in one egg, then vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix until completely blended. You may need to finish mixing with your hands. Mix in orange slice candy and dark chocolate chips. Shape into large sized balls. Place 2 inches apart on sprayed baking sheets. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes until edges are lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet. Remove cookies to racks to finish cooling. Makes approximately 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
