If you haven’t yet tried chocolate crinkle cookies, you have to do it. These cookies are intensively chocolatey, look great and their preparation is super easy. Chocolate crinkles are made of a fairly thick chocolate cookie dough covered in icing sugar. During baking, the cookies will rise and spread, creating a cracked pattern on their surface.
The baking time of cookies depends on the final consistency you want the cookies to have on the inside. I like well-baked cookies the most – those need about 14 minutes in the oven. If you are a fan of slightly undercooked biscuits, something like brownies, you should keep the cookies in the oven for 12 or even just for 10 minutes.
Ingredients for chocolate crinkles.
- 300 g crystal sugar
- 100 g dark cocoa
- 100 ml sunflower oil
- 4 eggs (medium size)
- 250 g all-purpose flour
- 60 g caster sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
How to make chocolate crinkles.
Pour oil into a bowl, add crystal sugar and whisk for 3-4 minutes. Then, add the eggs one-by-one, the vanilla extract, sifted flour and cocoa, baking powder and salt, all while whisking. Afterwards, whisk for an additional 2-3 minutes, until the ingredients combine well to form a thick chocolate cake. Cover the bowl with the dough with cling film and refrigerate for at least 4-5 hours.
Take the chocolate dough out of the refrigerator, scoop pieces out of it with a spoon and form balls 4-4.5 centimetres in diameter. Coat each ball very carefully in powdered sugar, then place them in a baking tray lined with baking paper, keeping lots of space between the cookies.
Put the cookies in an oven preheated to 180 degrees Celsius. Bake for 12-14 minutes. After baking, allow the cookies to cool for a few minutes.
Good to know when making chocolate crinkles.
I used one tablespoon of chocolate cookie dough for one piece of cookie.
During baking, the cookies will rise and separate, so it is important to keep a large space between them when you place them in the baking tray.
20 pieces of cookies come out of the given amounts.
