You're in for a treat with these chewy and oh-so-delicious chocolate cookies! Their cocoa crinkles are so addictive, that even a thick layer of powdered sugar can't hide them. Make sure you bake enough because once the crowd catches a whiff, there's no turning back!

Chocolate dough rolled in powdered sugar and baked into a snowcapped cookie. Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are the perfect Christmas cookies! With a crisp, crackled exterior and a chewy, fudgy interior, these cookies satisfy serious chocolate cravings.

The look is achieved through the transformation of sugar-coated dough balls into distinctively textured cookies. These are great over the holidays but you can freeze them and have a special treat whenever you have a chocolate craving.
This is a foolproof recipe for the dreamiest chocolate crinkle cookies that will look as beautiful as they are delicious.

💗The following are the key ingredients needed to prepare Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Granulated sugar and Powdered (Confectioners') sugar
  • Vegetable oil
  • Eggs, large
  • Vanilla extract
  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking powder
  • Salt

💗How To Make Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Flour mixture: Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. 

Cocoa mixture: In a stand-up mixer, mix together cocoa, white sugar, and vegetable oil. Beat in eggs one at a time, ( Eggs added one at a time leads to cookies that are thick and chewy ) then stir in the vanilla.

Stir the flour mixture into the cocoa mixture. Cover dough, and chill for at least 1 hour. (don't skip chilling)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into one-inch balls. I like to use a 1 tbsp cookie scoop. Coat each ball in confectioners'(powdered) sugar before placing it onto prepared cookie sheets.

💗Storing and Freezing Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

  • You can freeze chocolate crinkle cookies, both baked and unbaked. 

  • For baked cookies, simply stash them in an airtight container or zip-top bag in layers with a piece of parchment paper in between each layer. Freeze them for up to three months. 

  • For unbaked cookies, you can place the dough balls (without the confectioners' sugar) on a sheet pan and freeze until solid. Once they're solid, transfer the dough balls to a zip-top bag or airtight container and freeze them for up to three months. When you're ready to bake them, simply let the dough thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then coat them in confectioners' sugar and bake — you may need to add an extra minute or two for the baking time.
