Chocolate Crinkles


My family doesn’t make too many all-chocolate cookies at Christmas, but we turn to this recipe (given to my sister and me by a high school friend) every few years for something different.

½ cup vegetable oil
4 1-ounce squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
2 cups granulated sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup confectioners’ sugar

In a large bowl, mix oil, chocolate and granulated sugar. Blend in eggs, 1 at a time, until well mixed. Add vanilla. Stir flour, baking powder and salt into the oil mixture and stir until soft dough forms. Chill dough in the refrigerator for several hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place confectioners sugar in small bowl. For each cookie, drop a teaspoonful of dough into the sugar and roll into a small ball. Place balls of dough on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are puffy and dry to the touch. Makes approximately 6 dozen cookies.
