Chocolate crinkle cookies are perfect for those who dislike making decisions. Ultimately, they’re cookies, but that’s not all. They have a soft, fudgy consistency like brownies and taste almost like cake. You’ll never have to choose between cake, cookies, and brownies again! These rich, chewy cookies are downright delicious with delightfully crisp edges. If you love devil’s food cake, you’ll go nuts for them. (That’s kind of what they taste like.) They’re easy to make and have a gorgeous appearance. You’ll dust them in confectioner’s sugar before baking them.
Add the cocoa powder in and mix on low scraping the bowl down halfway through. If you’re using the espresso powder you can add in at this point. Add the eggs and vanilla in then mix until well combined.
Dump the flour mixture in and mix on low. Scrape bowl down and mix until combined. Cover in plastic and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours
Preheat oven to 176 C. Use a small ice cream scoop or tablespoon to scoop out the chilled dough and roll into roughly one inch balls with your clean palms. Roll dough in powdered sugar and place on parchment lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes at 176 C. The cookies’ edges will be set but the center will finish baking out of the oven.
