We were inspired to make some crinkle cookies after seeing them online. We weren’t sure if the recipe would be difficult, but it turned out to be easy! This is a fun recipe to do with kids as it is very chocolatey and the end product is very pretty.
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup sugar (regular granulated)
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup all purpose or plain flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar (for coating)
Mix together the cocoa powder, sugar, and vegetable oil.
Beat the eggs and add in the eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Mix thoroughly, then slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
Refrigerate the dough for 4+ hours.
Preheat oven to 350.
Roll tablespoons of dough into balls, then roll in confectioners sugar.
Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes. The cookies will be soft when first removed from the oven; allow to cool thoroughly before serving.
