I used to have a hard time making crinkles. Now, everything seems easy. Maybe because I also included the kids in making it so it felt easy. I just prepared all the ingredients, and they did all the mixing.
Got this recipe from Simply Recipes, but I tweaked it a little to suit my tolerance for sweets.
I did not use vanilla. I couldn’t find my vanilla. Plus, I rarely add it on my recipes because it sometimes overpowers the main flavor of what I’m making.
Forks. We just used forks for this recipe. They worked, but you can use a mixer. I just used forks for the kids to work with. They worked well, and the result was okay so I don’t mind using them next time.
Melted chocolate chips. The original recipe did not call for this one, but I use to follow Panlasang Pinoy’s recipe that used melted chocolate chips. It makes a huge difference so I always add it in my Crinkles.
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup white granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 4 eggs
- 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup of melted chocolate chips
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar (for coating)
1 .Beat together white sugar, vegetable oil, and cocoa powder.
2. Add the eggs.
3 . Add flour, baking powder, salt, and melted chocolate chips.
4. Chill for at least one hour.
*Preheat the oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place the confectioner’s sugar in a wide bowl.
5. Using an ice cream scoop, or a spoon, scoop some chilled dough and roll it into balls, roll into powdered sugar then place on parchment paper.
6 . Bake at 350°F for 11-13 minutes.
If you want it chewy, 10 minutes.
