Chocolate Crinkles

To prepare for a holiday cookie exchange, we've tried a few different types of cookies this week. According to the kids, this was the hands-down favorite, probably because it was the only one with chocolate in it! (Here are the other two kinds: Pistachio No-Bake Cookies and Mexican Wedding Cakes.)Chocolate Crinkles

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup melted butter
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
powdered sugarCombine the sugar and cocoa powder. Stir in the melted butter, then the eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and stir into the chocolate mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips. Cover and chill for several hours. Form the dough into 1" balls and roll in powdered sugar to coat. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350°. Makes about 2-3 dozen.
