    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 cup I can't believe it's not butter, room temperature
    1 cup splenda brown sugar blen
    2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
    2 teaspoons orange zest, finely grated
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    3 large eggs
    8 ounces dark chocolate, melted and cooled until barely warm
    4 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
    1/3 cup granulated sugar


Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line three large baking sheets with
parchment paper.

In medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. In stand
mixer with fitted paddle attachment, beat butter, brown sugar, cocoa,
orange zest, and vanilla on medium speed until well combined (4
minutes). Add eggs one at a time, beating briefly between additions.
Add cooled chocolate and mix until blended. Add dry ingredients and
mix on low speed until almost completely blended. Add chopped
chocolate and mix until blended.

Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls with small ice cream scoop. Pour
granulated sugar into shallow dish. Dip the top of each ball in sugar
and set dough balls, sugar side up, about 1 1/2 inches apart on
prepared baking sheets. Bake one sheet at a time until cookies are
puffed and cracked on top (11 to 12 minutes). Let cookies cool on
sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to rack to cool completely.

Yields about 5 dozen cookies. Great for the holidays or special
family treat.
