Last night, one of my closest friends in the world came over to learn some baking tips and techniques.  One of the treats we made is such an old recipe that I’ve been making for years.  If any of my family members are reading this, I know you’ve see this one before. If you’re a orange/chocolate lover, you’ll fall in love.  You can substitute the orange marmalade for any marmalade flavor of marmalade/jam you like. Raspberry jam would be excellent here. PS this recipe is so easy!


-(2) tsp. vegetable oil
-(12 oz./ small jar size) Orange Marmalade
-(3/4 c.) Semi-sweet chocolate chips
-(1/4 c.) Chopped Pecans
-(1/4 c.) Chopped Hazelnuts
-Store Bought  sugar cookie dough (aim for around 20 oz or whatever will fill up your cookie sheet) (use can you use favorite sugar cookie recipe here to substitute)

Jam It Out

(1) Roll out sugar cookie onto a greased cookie sheet.  Press into the cookie dough so the top ingredients will eventually incorporate nicely.  Bake until golden brown on top, then let cool.

(2) Combine both nuts and toast in a pan on medium/high heat.  Move the nuts around frequently so they don’t burn. You’ll know they’re ready when the nuts get very fragrant.

(3) Boil a small pot of water.  Once boiling, lower the heat and place a heat-safe bowl with the chocolate chips and vegetable oil on top of the pot.  Stir chocolate until completely melted.

(4) Using a butter knife spread marmalade on top of cookie.  Next, drizzle chocolate all over the marmalade and place nuts on top. Cut up in 12 squares and enjoy!
