Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

These are like little chewy brownies in a crispy, powdery shell! Yummmmm! Peppermint extract can be added for a perfect holiday cookie!

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
preheat oven to 350

2 C. sugar
1/2 C. oil
4 eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla (or 1 tsp. peppermint extract)
1 C. baking cocoa

2 C. flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
(1/2 c. crushed candy canes can be added as well for a fun, festive treat!)

roll into balls and then roll into:
1/2 C. powdered sugar

Place on baking sheet and bake for 10 -12 minutes, or until puffy in the center. Remove from oven while still puffy in the middle. (do not bake until they flatten out- they will be too hard.) Let cool and flatten for a few minutes before eating. Have lots of milk on hand!!!

These are AMAZING! I made a batch last night and the kids each had 2 after dinner. Then we had 4 visitors come over and by 9:30 pm they were all gone! Mmmm. I am trying peppermint-style next!
