Chocolate and orange blend beautifully in this Test Kitchen recipe, creating a special cookie with big taste. Better still, they're only 35 calories each!


  • 1 package (9 ounces) chocolate wafers, crushed
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup thawed orange juice concentrate
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • Baking cocoa and/or additional confectioners' sugar


  1. In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Shape into 3/4-in. balls; roll in confectioners' sugar. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Lightly sprinkle with cocoa and/or confectioners’ sugar before serving. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Splenda No Calorie Sweetener and Land O'Lakes light stick butter.

    I gave this to my friends at Valentine's Day. They raved about them. I didn't change a thing.

    I like this cookie made with the Nilla wafer cookies.
