Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

i adore these cookies. if a cookie & a brownie had a baby, it'd taste like these. they're crispy on the outside & chewy inside- literally almost perfection. i'd make them more often- but then i'd weigh 400 lbs. they're that good.

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
You Need:

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

Directions:

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 (i made these after exactly 4 hours & had no issues with handling the dough)

Preheat oven to 350 Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into one inch balls with lightly oiled palms (i sprayed my palms with Pam). I used a cookie scoop to portion the dough, a tablespoon or rounded teaspoon would also work depending on what size you like. Coat each ball in confectioners’ sugar before placing onto prepared cookie sheets. [Alternatively, try other ingredients like cinnamon-sugar or sprinkles.]

Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes (i cooked for 11). Let stand on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cool.

try not to eat them all.

i made one big one with white sugar & chili powder. oh my. i'm going to make more of those next time!
