Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Theses are handy if you want a brownie tasting cookie and don't have butter.
These are very easy to mix up.
 A few basic ingredients you probably have in the pantry. I use just one bowl.
 Mix the sugar into the melted chocolate and oil.
 Mix in the eggs and vanilla.
 Dump the flour and BP into a sifter and mix that in.
 After it's mixed you need to chill it for at least 1 hour so that you can roll it into balls.
 Put some powdered sugar into a shallow bowl and roll the balls into the sugar to coat.
Put on a sprayed cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 400.
Top off this experience with a glass of cold milk.
Have a few now...
and save some for later.

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
2 squares baking chocolate
1/4 C vegetable/canola oil
1 C sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
1 C flour
1 t baking powder
powdered sugar for rolling-about 1/3 C

Melt chocolate squares in a medium bowl in the microwave for 1-/1/2 minutes. Stir to melt completely.
Stir in then oil. Mix in the sugar, then the eggs, then the vanilla until thoroughly combined. Add the flour and BP through a sifter and mix in. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Moisten your hands with water and roll the dough into 1" balls and then roll into the powdered sugar. Place balls 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 400 for 10 minutes, or till the edges are set and the tops are cracked.  Don't overbake.  Remove from cookie sheet and let cool.


  1. I made these today, and they were yummy! All your recipes are great. I live with my mother, and she is a very willing partner in crime to test recipes. If it isn't too much trouble, could you maybe think about changing the color of the font and the visited link font on your side bar? Since you changed the background, I can't see it very well in my computer. If you don't want to, that's fine. I might have an issue with this netbook that I use in the kitchen when I cook. I'll survive!

  2. p.s. On second look I think it IS my computer because the pretty background with the forks isn't loading-- just the blue layer... My fault I think... I'm afraid
    Blogger and the older computers are having a part5ing of the ways....

  3. Rita these cookies look amazing!
    Can you tell me 2 squares of chocolate - what would that be? I'm from New Zealand so I'm not sure how much chocolate I should be adding.
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. 2 squares of unsweetened baking chocolate is equal to 2 ounces.
