Best Christmas Cookies Ever! Chocolate Crinkles [recipe & video]

I remember my mom making these when I was a kid.  Years went by and in just recent I asked her to start baking them again.  They take just a bit of work, but sooooooooo worth it.   Her recipe below:


  • 12 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup light or dark brown sugar, tightly packed
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup natural cocoa powder
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, for rolling

Same recipe and ‘how to’ instructions (HERE)
