Chocolate Crinkle Cookies


  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil(or canola, or light olive oil)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp  vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar


    • In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, cocoa powder, oil, vanilla extract and eggs. Whisk until the mixture is smooth.
    • In a separate bowl, combine flour together, baking powder and salt.
    • Add the flour mixture to the cocoa mixture and stir to combine.
    • Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours and up to overnight.
    • Preheat the oven to 350F. Scoop dough with a  mini ice cream scoop  for even portioning into 20 cookies then roll cookie dough into even-sized balls (it’s easier to roll with wet hands) and generously roll each into powdered sugar.
    • Place cookies on a baking sheet, being sure to leave space between each of the cookies. Bake for 10-12 minutes, depending on the size of the cookies. Cookies will come out soft but will harden as they cool down.
    • Allow cookies to slightly cool. Then, move them to a wire rack to fully cool down.
