Chocolate Crinkles

This is a fudgy type cookie (think brownies)I like it because it is low in fat and very chocolaty. One usually has these items in the pantry.


  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (You can substitute 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce for 1/2 the amount to cut down on fat even farther.)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar


In a medium bowl, mix together cocoa, white sugar, and vegetable oil. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, stir into the cocoa mixture. Cover dough and chill for at least 4 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray. Roll into 1 inch balls. Coat each ball in the confectioner's sugar before placing onto the prepared cookie sheets.

This recipe is easy to halve if you only want a few cookies.

Bake in a preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cool.
