Orange Creamsicle Cookies

Orange Creamsicle Cookies

If you’re looking for an amazing cookie that just screams “summer,” you need to try these.

I love anything orange creamsicle related.  Including the Popsicles, of course.  And these were just so much fun to eat.

Plus, they were super simple, since I started with a box mix.

If you follow the directions on the box, they suggest adding the matching flavored icing to the cookies, but I tend to avoid icings that may not actually dry.  Too difficult to store.

So I dipped them in white chocolate instead.

And to really get the creamsicle-flavor, I also added a cup of white chocolate chips to the batter.

If you were in a bind and didn’t have the time to dip the cooled cookies in chocolate (even tho it only takes a few minutes), you still need to add in the chocolate chips.  They really send the cookies over the edge.

Above is a pic of the box mix that I used.  Picked it up at the grocery store in the cake mix aisle.

But if you can’t find it in your local store, the Pillsbury Orangesicle Premium Cookie Mix is also available online.

Here you can see the batter with the chocolate chips mixed in.

Like little gooey balls of creamsicles……

After they were baked and fully cooled, I dipped them in some melted Bright White Candy Melts (tho regular white would work, too).

It looks like I dipped the cookies in halfway, but the chocolate really only covers the top and sides – not the bottom.  I didn’t want the chocolate overpowering the orange flavor.

1 box Pillsbury Orangesicle Premium Cookie Mix
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup white or bright white Candy Melts

Make the cookie dough according the package directions.  Stir in chocolate chips and drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets.  Bake according to package directions.  Allow to cool completely.

Melt the Candy Melts in a small bowl.  Dip half of the top of each cookie into the melted chocolate and allow to set on waxed or parchment paper.  Store covered.
