Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

This recipe has been haunting me since Nie posted about them almost a month ago. These cookies are chewy and rich and chocolatey, and also quite pretty.

They're fun to make, too. You get to roll them in powdered sugar before baking them. So pretty!

And the dough is almost as addicting as the finished product.

Be careful, this stuff is dangerous.

What? Oh no, that was already there. Yep.

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

2 cups sugar
¾ cup vegetable oil
¾ cup hershey's cocoa powder
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
powdered sugar

In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar and oil. Add cocoa; blend well. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder & salt; add to cocoa mixture blending well. Cover; chill for 2 hours. Heat oven to 350. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in powdered sugar. Place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when touched. Remove from cookie sheet; cool on wire rack.

Makes 4 dozen. (I halved this!)

  1. When I grow up I want to take pictures like you Angie. :)

  2. could these be shower cookies, they are so beautiful and I have been promising chocolate!!!

  3. I love the name of these cookies! They look really yummy.

    I also love your creative use of words to describe this recipe: haunting, addicting, dangerous... So much drama for such a cute, little, innocent(?) cookie!

  4. we make these, and I LOVE THEM! the recipe is almost exactly the same except we use brown sugar-not regular and melted chocolate chips instead of cocoa. I think i'll go make some right now...haha
