Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Good Morning and Happy Friday! What better way to celebrate than with a little chocolate? If you are needing a little bit of snow, these sugar dusted cookies might just do the trick. At least, they always reminded me of a cold, snowy day.


To be fair, my family seemed to save the holiday baking for snowiest of days and not the snow-esque dusting of the powdered sugar. That paired with the fudge-y chocolate flavor is a wonderful winter treat. I was a bit hesitant to try and find a new way to crinkle since chocolate deserts haven’t been my strong suit, but I’m glad I did. I tried to mix up the sugars to both bring out the chocolate and get a crackle fudgy cookie. I was surprised that this is a cookie of two names. To crinkle or to crackle – that is the question!
