Once I got past measuring everything in grams, this recipe was easy to make. I used semi-sweet chocolate and I probably should have used regular sweet chocolate. I also added 2 teaspoons of frozen orange juice concentrate, based on the past reviewer's note. You can taste the chocolate and the orange flavors. These were good cookies. I will be making them again.
If I had one day left to live, I'd bake these and eat these with a glass of cold milk. VERY soft and melt-in-your-mouth, even though there wasn't much marmalade flavour. I might increase that next time - and there will DEFINITELY be a next time!!!! Thanks for the most delicious cookie recipe I've ever made!!!!
