Description

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are fudgy, pillows of goodness! A rich, chocolate cookie is coated in powdered sugar and baked for the classic crinkle effect. The cookies are brownie-like in the center with a fluffy, chewy exterior that is irresistible!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (Dutch processed preferred)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar for coating

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the melted butter, sugar and brown sugar on medium speed until smooth, about a couple minutes. Reduce the speed to low and mix in one egg at a time, wiping down the sides of the bowl in between each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract.
  2. Add in the cocoa powder, flour and baking powder and mix just until a dough forms. Refrigerate the dough for 2-3 hours. This can be done by adding the bowl of dough to the refrigerator, or by scooping the dough out into balls, placing them all on a baking sheet and refrigerating the whole baking sheet. Either option works.
  3. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Use a medium-sized cookie scoop to scoop the refrigerated dough into cooke dough balls. Roll each cooke dough ball into the powdered sugar to completely coat. Place on a baking sheet a few inches apart from each other.
  4. Bake for 11-12 minutes, taking the pans out halfway through and banging them on the counter to help with the crinkle process. They can also be banged on the counter a couple times after the baking process in addition to help with this.
  5. Transfer to a wire rack to cool and enjoy!

Notes

  • Dutch processed cocoa is preferred for this recipe but not required. I find that it yields a much more decadent chocolate flavor.
  • The cookies can also be baked on a parchment-lined baking sheet to help with cleanup as the powdered sugar does fluff off a bit when banged on the counter.
  • Prep time includes refrigeration time.
