Chocolate Crinkle Cookies have to be one of the prettiest cookies at the holidays. Growing up in western Canada, snow was always on the ground at Christmastime without fail, and the look of chocolate crinkle cookies with their snowy appearance just screams “winter treat” to me.
They are a fun cookie to make because they go into the oven looking one way (like well crafted snowballs), but come out of the oven looking completely different. The dough is soft and tender and melts in the oven, flattening into a beautiful treat. Making these treats is easy. You just need to beat the dough together and then heed my advice to let the dough chill for at least an hour – it’s much easier to work with cool dough than with room temperature dough.
