Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

by 

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are a Christmas staple in our family. Although, I’m not sure why we only made them at Christmas time. The inside is like a brownie, while the outside is a little crispy. Before baking they’re rolled in powdered sugar for a little extra sweetness. And when they bake up, they get all those cracks and crinkles in them. They really are a perfect cookie for any time of the year!

How to Make Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Start by mixing the eggs and sugar together for 3 minutes. Add the oil and melted chocolate and continue mixing until everything is combined.

Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Chill the dough for 20-30 minutes.

Use a medium sized scoop to scoop out the cookies. Roll in powdered sugar and then bake. I under bake mine slightly at just around 10 minutes. You can bake for up to 12 minutes for a crispier cookie.

Happy Baking!
