Chocolate Crinkle cookies
Recipe By: Bahar

About this Recipe:

BaharBahar: What can taste better than a delicious dark chocolate bar? Try these gooey chocolate crinkle cookies and you will find the answer.

Main Ingredients:

All purpose flour: 3/4 cup
Granulated sugar: 3/4 cup
Baking powder: 3/4 tsp
Salt: 1/4 tsp
Butter: 1/4 cup (unsalted)
Unsweetened cocoa powder: 1/3 cup (not Dutch process)
Egg: 1 (preferably room temperature)
Vanilla : 1/2 tsp (extract or powder)
Semisweet chocolate chips: 1/3 cup*
Powdered sugar: 3/4 cup (sifted)


1.Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl; set aside.

2.Melt butter in a small bowl in microwave oven (set on high power for about 1-2 minutes) or in a small saucepan over low heat. Be careful not to burn the butter.

3.Add cocoa powder to butter whisking until smooth. Stir in the egg and mix well until fully blended. Stir in vanilla **.

4.Stir flour mixture into cocoa mixture and mix just until combined. Do not over mix. Fold chocolate chips into the dough until evenly distributed.

5.Preheat oven to 350 F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

6.Scoop small pieces of dough. Roll in hand to make small (about 1 inch) balls. Roll balls in powdered sugar twice. Place the balls on prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart.

7.Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are cracked, still soft. Do not over bake.

8.Take baking sheets out of the oven and let cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to the wire rack and let cool completely.

* Equivalently you can use about 2 ounces or 60 grams semisweet or dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces.

** For coffee flavoured cookies, dissolve 1 tsp instant coffee granules with 2 Tbsp hot water and stir in the cocoa mixture.

*** You can make the dough and refrigerate it up to few days before baking.

This is the best choco crinkle recipe I've ever seen in the net...

I tried this recipe twice and it did NOT work out at all. I tried changing the cook time, the amount of butter and nothing would seem to work. I ended up burning the crinkle cookies with the middle being raw (9 minutes in oven)!

Hi Jennifer. You have to take the cookies out of the oven no more than a minute or two later than they are cracked, and you have to let them cool for at least 5 minutes to settle. These cookies are supposed to be goeey inside. You may also try using lower temprature (325F or even 300F) for your oven; note that ovens reaul temprature may slightly vary from what they say and if so, you have to accordingly adjust the temprature suggested in the recipe for your oven.

How do you make the crinkle soft even many hours past by? Some crinkles get hard after few hours it was baked.

Bahar, Member2009 Jul 12
Hi Fris. You have to store them in a container with a lid or ziploc after they are cool. They should stay fresh for upto few days at room temperature. If you keep them refrigerated they'll last longer. Good question though, I should add the storage hints to the recipe. Thanks

Me and my mom really liked these cookies. The questions I have are How do I get them circular in shape rather than like normal cookies? and Why do they crumble so much when putting them on the cookie sheet? Can I prevent this in the future ? Thanks !
