I worked with a recipe I already had to come up with these. These cookies are particularly popular with my kids (because anything with powdered sugar on top is popular with my kids) but they’re a good chocolate fix for anyone who needs one!
Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
2 c. flour
2 t. baking powder (the large amount of powder will make these cookies collapse, causing the crinkles)
1/2 t. salt
8 T. butter
2 T. semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
4 T. cocoa
1 3/4 c. granulated sugar
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1/2 c. powdered sugar, for rolling
Whisk flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl and set aside. Combine the butter and semisweet chocolate, and melt them in the microwave or stove over medium heat until melted. Stir in the cocoa, and let cool briefly. Meanwhile, combine granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a mixer and slowly add the chocolate mixture. Then, add the flour mixture and combine (the dough will be soft). Divide the dough into two portions, flatten into a disk, wrap in plastic and place in the fridge for one hour, or the freezer for 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350. Place powdered sugar in a small bowl. Take the dough out and pinch off 1″ sized pieces, roll into balls, and then roll in the powdered sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheets, 2″ apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes, let cool for 2 minutes, then remove to wire racks.
Let me know what you think!

I just finished making these and they turned out wonderfully. Half of the batch I left plain and frosted them with cream cheese frosting to make Oreos, and they also turned out very rich and chewy. Excellent recipe, Natalie!
