Cookies are a simple snack or dessert and these chocolate crinkle cookies are my favorite of all cookies. Yummy chocolaty goodness in a cookie!


  • 3/4 c. cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. Clabber Girl Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs


Combine all ingredients, except the powdered sugar, together in a medium mixing bowl and mix together well. Batter will be dark brown and sticky. Cover with saran wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

Put the powdered sugar in a dish and set aside for later. Once batter is chilled roll about 2 tablespoons with your hands in a ball. Roll each cookie ball in the powdered sugar so it is fully coated then place on greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. I remove immediately at 10 minutes and let the cookies set up a little longer on the cookie sheet. Then remove them and place on a cooling rack. At 10 minutes they are so soft and delicious! Letting them set up on the cookie sheet a little longer after out of the oven allows them to set up more and easier to remove from the cookie sheet. Makes about 2 dozen.
