Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

These are little pieces of chocolate gold - seriously! I actually mixed the dough up the night before and it worked perfectly since the dough is supposed to be chilled. These taste a bit like a brownie cookie covered in yummy powdered sugar!

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar

In a medium bowl, mix together cocoa, sugar and vegetable oil. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the cocoa mixture. Cover dough and place in freezer for 30 minutes or chill in refrigerator for 4 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cookie sheets with nonstick spray. Use a cookie scoop to scoop dough into one inch balls. Coat each ball with powdered sugar before placing onto prepared cookie sheets.

Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. Let stand on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cool.
Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! And hide some.
