These Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are on my "to do" list for a long time. They are crisp on the outside
but chewy in the center and ridiculously easy to make.
If you're a chocolate lover, you're going to love these cookies. They have deep chocolate flavor.
I suppose to roll the cookies in confectioners sugar for that pretty crack on top but last minute, I could not find my powdered sugar so have coated them with fine sugar.
Make sure to place the rolled cookies 1 in apart, as they bake, they spread and the surface cracks.
You can turn the same recipe into Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies by adding a tablespoon of red food coloring to the flour mixture.
