Chocolate Crinkle Cookies (Gluten and Dairy Free)

Thanksgiving is over, and now it’s time to move on to my favorite holiday season- Christmas! My favorite decoration are the homemade gingerbread houses, which we’re making this weekend. So, until those are ready, I have some Christmastime chocolate crinkle cookies to hold you over.

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies!

While they’re great warm right after the oven, I still love them when they cool. They truly “crinkle” in your mouth. You’ll first bite through a light crunch to a soft chocolatey middle. The perfect combination of textures.

Like a brownie inside!

I honestly cannot resist these pieces of chocolatey goodness wrapped in powdered sugar. I even took one out of the cookie jar for breakfast this morning, or at least for a pre-breakfast treat!

So, without further ado, let’s bring on the recipe!

  4. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or grease thoroughly.
  5. Now, it’s time to dip the cookies! In one bowl, pour the remaining ½ cup of sugar. And in a second bowl add powdered sugar.
  6. Roll the chilled cookie dough into 1-inch balls. Then roll in the sugar, followed by the powdered sugar.
