Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

posted in: cooking, marissa | 1

Here is yummy recipe #2 from my first annual cookie exchange.  I think it is a fairly well known cookie.  Chocolate crinkles are basically a brownie mixture that you chill for HOURS.  After waiting and waiting and waiting, you take the dough out of the fridge, roll it into balls and coat it with powdered sugar before baking.  It is totally worth the wait.  This was the other cookie from the exchange that was gone the first day I had them.  So yummy and addictive!  Thanks H.B. for contributing!
