Chocolate Crinkles

Ok, Analise and I are embarking on a month of Christmas cookies and candy. This was our first recipe, and it was AWESOME! Easy and incredibly delicious. These are like little brownie bites.

  • 3/4 c. butter, melted
  • 1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 t vanilla extract
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 t b aking powder
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 ounces (half a bag or 1 cup, I think) mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 c. confectioner's sugar
In a large bowl, mix together the melted butter, cocoa powder and sugar. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla extract. In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Use a large spoon to slowly add the dry ingredients to the chocolate mixture. Stir in the chips. Refrigerate the dough for 2 hours.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Form the dough into 1-inch balls, then roll them in confectioners' sugar. Bake the cookies on an ungreased baking sheet for 10 minutes. Set the baking sheet on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then lightly dust the cookies with the remaining confectioners' sugar. Transfer the cookies directly onto the rack to cool thoroughly. Makes about 4 dozen.
