Cocoa Crinkles

Oh I know you've all seen this one, it's an oldie but goodie.  I had never made 
them before and had no idea how delicious they were, not to mention easy!  

They have a very fudge-y flavor with a light texture.  I'm wishing we hadn't eaten them all up!  

Here is the recipe for you (from allrecipes)


  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together cocoa, white sugar, and vegetable oil. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the cocoa mixture. Cover dough, and chill for at least 4 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into one inch balls. I like to use a number 50 size scoop. Coat each ball in confectioners' sugar before placing onto prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cool.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas celebrating with family and friends!


  1. With all my holiday baking, I've never actually made a crinkle cookie before. With your description, I definitely want to try it soon though! Merry Christmas!

  2. Crinkle cookies are always a good choice! I like to put a little bit of mint extract in them sometimes, too.
