Christmas is gone for another year. And, on an even sadder note, I ate the last chocolate crinkle cookie yesterday. Its chewy, chocolate goodness will live on in memory though – everyone loved them!
The chocolate cookie recipe comes from The Moveable Feasts blog that I pinned last week on Pinterest. Although I vowed no Christmas baking this year, we had guests come over for a last minute Christmas get together, so I whipped up this batch of cookies. Not only are they sensationally delicious, but I think the cookies are visually stunning too.
The chocolate cookies are easy to make and use three forms of chocolate: melted unsweetened chocolate, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips. What’s not to love?
I used my favorite cookie scoop to portion the cookie dough, as I’m a stickler for cookies of the same size and shape (and given the uniform size, it helps with even baking too). With the scoop, I yielded 48 cookies or so from the recipe.
The cookies get their white coating from rolling the cookie dough balls in powdered sugar before placing on the baking sheet. As they bake, the cookies will puff and split apart on the top. Once cooled, the cookies have their signature ‘crinkle’ tops.
The recipe worked well and is one I’ll add to my ever-growing list of delicious chocolate recipes: Triple Chocolate Biscotti, No-Bake Brownie Bites, Homemade Payday Candy Bars, Low-Fat Chocolate Snack Cake.
