Yummy chocolate cookie coated with powdered sugar. When it bakes, the cookie crackles all over, leaving dark brown cracks in the otherwise white cookie. Very pretty!

Makes about 72

1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup confectioner's sugar

Stir together oil, chocolate and granulated sugar. Blend in one egg at a time until well
mixed. Add vanilla. Stir flour, baking powder, and salt into oil mixture. Chill several hours or overnight. Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Drop teaspoonfuls of dough into confectioner's sugar. Roll in sugar; shape into balls. Place about 2" apart on greased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes. Don't overbake!

Would make this again.

These can be expensive to make if you're on a budget since the recipe calls for 4 oz. of baking chocolate and a 4(!) eggs, but they are so worth it. I make them once a year for Christmas and their my oldest daughter's absolute favorite cookie. I agree with one of the other reviewers--it's just not Christmas without Chocolate Crinkles. 5 stars

These cookies are a family tradition at Christmas time. It's not Christmas without Chocolate Crinkles. They are the 1st cookie I bake and I always make a double batch. When family arrives, they disappear quickly. They are the best cookie ever! 5 stars

We love this cookie so is one our very favorites. Add a non-pareil in the middle of each cookie when you first take them out of the oven and cool thoroughly. This makes a little difference to this wonderful chocolate treat. Merry Christmas to all. 5 stars
