Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 3 hours

Deeply chocolate cookies peeking through a powdered sugar coating. This childhood favorite is loved by kids + grown-ups!



  • 3/4c oil
  • 3/4c cocoa
  • 2 c sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2c flour
  • about 1 c powdered sugar


  1. Mix oil, cocoa, and sugar until it’s about the texture of wet sand. Stir in one egg at a time, making sure to incorporate each egg. Stir in vanilla, salt, and baking powder. Sift in flour and stir to combine.
  2. Refrigerate 2-3 hours or overnight. Form into 1″ balls. Roll each in powdered sugar to coat well. Place on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray, covered with parchment, or lined with a silicone baking mat.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
  4. Cookies will still look slightly dough-y. Don’t overbake them! Leave them on the warm pan 1-2 minutes and the heat will continue to set the cookies. When cookies are set enough to move, transfer to a cooling rack.
  5. Makes about 4.5-5 dozen cookies.
