Best Chocolate Crinkles!




Having grown up in Manila, I have come to believe that there are not many chocolatey cookies out there that are as perfectly wonderful as the soft, chewy (fudgy?) chocolate crinkles, which in my book are the best holiday treats from the Philippines.

I have searched high and low for good chocolate crinkle cookies but none were nearly as good as the ones from the Philippines...Until I stumbled upon this gold nugget of a cookie recipe online and tried baking them myself one day. The outcome was quite spectacular. It was a total surprise! :o)

Here is the original recipe from allrecipes.com, my go-to recipe source:

Ingredients

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil (use coconut oil if you like!)
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

Directions

1. In a medium bowl, mix together cocoa, white sugar, and vegetable oil. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the cocoa mixture. Cover dough, and chill for at least 4 hours.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into one inch balls. Coat each ball in confectioners' sugar before placing onto prepared cookie sheets.


3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cool.


Try this uber easy recipe out! It will change your life!


(Cookies ready to be sent along to Collin's kindergarten teacher Mrs. A because: 1) She's awesome!; 2) She got married last year and her husband happens to be a Filipino-American; 3) And they are expecting a baby in May 2015! -- Anyone pregnant can use some of these yummy sweet treats, I think...? :o)
