Chocolate Crinkle Cookies


All-Purpose Flour1 cup
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder1/2 cup
Granulated Sugar1 cup
Baking Powder1 tsp
Salt1/4 tsp
Vegetable Oil1/3 cup
Vanilla Extract1 tsp
Powdered Sugar1/2 cup


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract together until smooth.
  4. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until a soft and slightly sticky dough forms.
  5. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight. Chilling the dough helps the cookies hold their shape during baking.
  6. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Place the powdered sugar in a small bowl.
  7. Remove the dough from the refrigerator. Take about 1 tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball between your palms.
  8. Roll the dough ball in the powdered sugar until fully coated. The powdered sugar creates the beautiful crinkle effect as the cookies bake.
  9. Place the coated dough balls on the prepared baking sheet, leaving enough space between each cookie for spreading.
  10. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are set and the tops have cracked. The centers will still be slightly soft.
  11. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  12. Once cooled, these delightful Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are ready to be devoured!
