  • 1 box orange cake mix
  • ½ 6-oz. package orange gelatin
  • Zest of ½ a navel orange
  • 2 eggs
  • Juice of ½ orange
  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • Preheat oven to 350°, and prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl or stand mixer, combine the cake mix and gelatin.
  • Add the zest, and mix slightly, so it’s distributed throughout.
  • Add the eggs, orange juice, and oil, and mix until well combined. Add white chocolate chips, and fold them into the dough until they are well distributed.
  • Roll into 1½-inch balls, and place on a cookie sheet, leaving a fair amount of space between as the cookies will spread.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, and cool on a wire rack for about 10 additional minutes.
