#bakingwithmonica: Chocolate Crinkle Cookies - Christmas Edition

Hello loves! Happy Holidays!
It's finally Christmas time and even though around here there's no such thing as a White Christmas, you know with snow and stuff, it is pretty cold outside and Sunday mornings call for a warm batch of cookies. I thought these Chocolate Crinkle Cookies screamed Christmas so I had to try and make them and since they turned out pretty good, and you guys seemed interested in them over at my instagram, I decided to share the let's go, it's #bakingwithmonica time!

Warning: This is not a vegan or diet recipe, if you´re counting calories click out.



  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  •  1/4 cup light brown sugar
  •   6 Tbsp butter softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt 
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup powdered sugar



  1. In a mixing bowl cream together the butter with both sugars until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the eggs one at a time until combined. Mix in the vanilla extract.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder.
  4. Start adding the dry mixture to the wet ingredients in thirds until fully combined.
  5. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap & chill for at least 4 hours or overnight - this step is very important, I only waited 2 and a half hours and it was a mess to roll the dough!
  6. Preheat the oven to 175º C and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  7. Shape about a tbsp of dough into little balls and roll them in the powdered sugar.
  8. Bake them for 12 minutes and transfer them to a cooling wrack.

Allow them to cool completely before enjoying!

And there you have them: delicious, rich chocolate flavored and beautifully crinkled cookies, perfect to enjoy this Christmas, to serve to guests at holiday parties, to give as cute edible gifts and to leave out for Santa on Christmas Eve... just don't forget to leave him a cup of milk!

Hope you have an amazing Christmas :)
