Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are a Christmas tradition in this house ~ we love the chocolate goodness.  The taste is very similar to a brownie - yum!
You do need to chill the cookie dough for at least 4 hours, so I usually make the dough one day and bake them the next.  I bake them on a silpat, but you can use parchment paper if you don't have a silpat.

Yummy chocolate goodness!

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I use Hershey's)
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
confectioners' sugar for rolling

In a large mixing bowl, mix together cocoa powder, sugar and vegetable oil.
Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.  Combine flour, paking powder, and salt and then mix it into the cocoa mixture.  Cover dough and chill for at least 4 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line cookie sheets with a Silpat or parchment paper.  Roll dough into one inch balls.  Coat each ball in confectioners' sugar before placing them onto your prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Let stand on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cool.


  1. Yum! These sound so good and would look so pretty on a red plate as a gift to neighbors. Thanks for sharing the recipe with us.

  2. Looks super good. My mom used to make those too and they were amazing! Love that pink mixer!

  3. These cookies are gorgeous--I love how striking the contrast of the white and brown is. AND these look absolutely delicious!

  4. I made a similar cookie for Christmas. Yours look great!

  5. Aww when I was working at Cookies by Design the chocolate crinkles were always popular next to the chocolate chip cookies :-)
