Who doesn’t love a gooey, chocolatey cookie encased in a generous portion of powdered sugar? These Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are just that, pure chocolate, sugary goodness. Another Christmas classic, and if it’s not also one of Santa’s favorites its one of my brother’s. When he’s home I have to hide these babies in the vegetable drawer so he can’t find them! (Ben sorry if you’re reading this). It’s an easy to make cookie, with a list of simple ingredients that you probably have on hand anyway. I need one of these, and a glass of milk STAT!
