Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
"Chocolate Crinkles are one of my favorite christmas cookies (I mean, right next to Soft Molasses Cookies, Gingerbread Cookies, Peppermint Brownie Cookies… I’m a cookie monster 😁). An extra-soft, chewy, fudgy cookie that’s dipped in powdered sugar before baking. The best thing about them? They are so easy to make pretty. All you have to do is make sure the powdered sugar coating is thick enough before baking, and they’ll crinkle and become all beautiful during baking."

An extra-soft, chewy, fudgy cookie that’s dipped in powdered sugar before baking – what’s not to love?! And decorating couldn't be easier: just make sure to coat the dough generously in powdered sugar before baking, and they’ll crinkle and become beautiful during baking.



Prep time 15mins
Cook time 30mins
Serves or Makes: 32 Cookies


  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/ 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/ 4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/ 3 cup softened butter
  • 1 1/ 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/ 2 cup powdered sugar


  • Step 1

    Combine dry ingredients: Combine cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Cream wet ingredients: Place butter, sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix on medium-low speed just until combined – about 10 seconds each.

  • Step 3

    Make cookie dough: Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and mix on low speed until incorporated.

  • Step 4

    Chill cookie dough: Cover the bowl and chill the dough for at least 1 hour or up to overnight (the longer you chill, the thicker the cookies will be).

  • Step 5

    Roll cookies: When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the powdered sugar in a medium bowl. Roll the dough into tablespoon-sized balls and cover them well with the sugar.

  • Step 6

    Bake cookies: Place on a lined baking sheet with enough space between them (bake in batches) and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until spread and crackled. Cookies will still be soft, so let them cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing them to a cooling rack to cool completely.
