These Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are basically double chocolate cookies rolled in powdered sugar. What’s not to love?! Easy. Fudge-y. Delicious! No chilling the dough!
Either way, these chocolate crinkle cookies are comin’ at ya! 😉
I just LOVE this time of year.
The first time I tested this recipe, I texted a picture to my sister, Megan, and asked her if she used to like these cookies growing up.
She immediately responded with:
YES OMG WHAT THOSE ARE MY FAVE. send them 2 me now pls
While I can’t actually send her any of these chocolate crinkle cookies (sorry, I ate them all already 😉 ), I CAN dedicate this post to her.
This one’s for you! 😉
If you’ve never had a chocolate crinkle cookie, well, we’re going to change that today, because you’ve SERIOUSLY been missing out.
Chocolate crinkle cookies are basically double chocolate cookies that have been rolled in powdered sugar . . .
they’re also know as . . .
. . . heaven. 😉
They’re fudge-y, chocolate-y, rich, and yep, you guessed it, SO easy to make.
Then you’ll mix in some vanilla extract and an egg.
Next, you’ll mix in flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt until it’s well combined.
Lastly, add in some semi-sweet mini chocolate chips. I like using those, so you get chocolate in every.single.bite.
You’ll scoop up the dough using a cookie scoop then roll it in powdered sugar. Don’t be stingy! Like I actually fully submerge each cookie dough ball in a bowl of powdered sugar and never shake off the excess. 🙂
Now all that’s left to do is bake!
The result is a warm, thin (but not crunchy), ultra fudge-y, extra chocolatey chocolate crinkle cookie. 🙂
The posted recipe makes 16 large cookies . . . I say make a couple batches, so you can save one batch for you and give one away to a friend (or sister 😉 ).
