Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Crinkle Cookies are one of my favorite cookies – so tasty, and cute too! They are easy enough to make and are festive for any occasion or just for fun. Chocolate baked goods are my go-to desserts, and this one hits the spot.


  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup sugar (regular granulated)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose or plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar (for coating)


Mix together the unsweetened cocoa powder, sugar, and vegetable oil.

Beat the eggs, then add in the eggs and vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and refrigerate the dough for at least four hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Roll tablespoons of dough into balls, then roll in confectioners sugar.

Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes.

The cookies will be soft when first removed from the oven.

Allow the cookies to cool thoroughly before serving.
