Chocolate Crinkle Cookies...





Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are definitely a Christmas tradition around here.  I've been making these for eons! (just kidding... over a decade, but sometimes that can seem like eons!!!)  My family LOVES these! To me, they taste like brownies in a cookie form.  YUM!!!  The girls love helping out, too, which makes for even more fun.  


WARNING they get super messy with the powdered sugar.  Why is it that the messier things are, the better they taste????


After you've mixed together your dough and it's chilled at least an hour in the refrigerator, shape into 1 inch balls.  




Then roll each cookie dough ball into powdered sugar.  Yep, This is where things start to get messy.  





Place each ball onto a prepared cookie sheet.  You can use cooking spray or use parchment paper. 





Now they're all ready to bake!!  But see what I  mean about the mess?  All over the counter. Y'all should've seen the floor. Yikes!!! 









shared these years ago here on my blog, but wanted to be sure and share them again.  They're very easy to make, great for children to help, and always gets major thumbs up when you share them with others.  




Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

3 eggs
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
12 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup PLUS 4 tablespoons cooking oil
2 teaspoons baking powder

Stir all the ingredients together (except for powdered sugar) and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

Shape into 1 inch balls and roll into powdered sugar. Place balls 1 inch apart on a prepared cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 8-10 minutes or till the edges are set and tops are crackled.

We make these too, and my kids love them.
And why is that I can make more of a mess with 1 cup of powdered sugar than with an entire 5 lb. bag of flour??

Those sound delicious! My son often helps me bake and we always joke that there is powdered sugar and flour on every surface by the time he's done.
