Chocolate Crackles

28 12 2011

So I am pretty sure that most people are in a sugar comma with all the sweets that they consumed during Christmas. I knew it was coming so I made sure to plan ahead. Instead of baking all my sweets I made a batch at a time and once they were gone waited a few days and made the next batch. This way my small little family of four didn’t consume quite as much and the cookies or treats didn’t go bad before we ate them all.  These are one of my favorites and my husband describes them as little brownies in the cookie form and rolled in powdered sugar. Super simple to make and chocolaty and chewy.


Chocolate Crackles

~ 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate pieces

~ 1 cup brown sugar, packed

~ 1/3 cup salad oil

~  2 eggs

~ 1 tsp. vanilla

~ 1 cup flour

~ 1 tsp. baking powder

~ 1/4 tsp. salt

~ 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional

~ powdered sugar (about 1/2 cup)

1. Melt chocolate. Combine with sugar and oil. Add eggs on at a time; beat well. Add vanilla.

2. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add to chocolate mixture. Stir in nuts. Chill dough.

3. Drop teaspoonful’s of dough in powdered sugar and roll to coat. Place on greased cookie sheet or baking mat. Bake at 350 oven 10-12 minutes. Cool on rack.

[…] Chocolate Crackles are also a cookie that I remember having around the holidays. The best thing about these cookies is rolling the dough in powdered sugar or even better having your kids help you with that. […]
