Chocolate Crinkles To Make Santa Extra Happy

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

These Chewy Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are soft, chewy, and turn out picture-perfect – my favorite Christmas cookie to bake. Just a short chilling time and an EASY dough make these so simple 

I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned this before, but Chocolate Crinkles are one of my all-time favorite Christmas cookies.

I mean, right next to Soft Molasses Cookies, Gingerbread Cookies, Peppermint Brownie Cookies… I’m a cookie monster 

My mom used to make these every year when I was a kid, only she dipped them in granulated sugar vs powdered sugar for the crunch. She was wrong (sorry, Mom!). The powdered sugar makes these SO pretty!

I love how to powdered sugar reveals these beautiful crackles once the cookies sink down and cool after baking.

I usually help them out a little with this by gently pushing down on them with the bottom of a drinking glass – this also makes them denser and chewier, exactly how I love them.

I added a few notes to the recipe below to help you figure out which other tweaks you can make for extra fudgy cookies; and what to do if you prefer them taller and softer.

This is one of the cookies we usually leave out for Santa, and he takes his with a mug of Hot Chocolate and a Snickerdoodle on the side 

I hope you’ll love these as much as we do!
