Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

With the Christmas season in full swing that means cookie season is also in full swing. I’m a huge sweets person and cookies are my favorite. My favorite Christmas cookies of all-time are the Chocolate Crinkle. They are filled with chocolate goodness and topped with a decadent powered sugar. Not only are they absolutely delicious, they are super easy to make. The hardest part is waiting for the dough to chill in the freezer, and not being able to bake them right away.

First Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and assemble what you will need. These cookies have minimal ingredients.

Take your 4 oz of unsweetened chocolate. I like to use Bakers Bars unsweetened chocolate.

Once oil, sugar, and chocolate are combined. Add eggs one at a time.

Add flour mixture into dough mixture until combined. The batter will be thick. Don’t mind my messy bowl, my Kitchen Aid Mixer is on the fritz and decided to spray flour all over the place.

Place dough in a bowl and cover.

Place in freezer to chill for 2-3 hours. This step, though hard, is essential and the dough is much more manageable to form into balls.

Once chocolate dough is chilled, use a cookie scoop and using your palms roll into small balls. Roll balls in confectioners sugar.
