Twelve Days of Christmas Goodies ~ Day 2: Chocolate Crinkles

Day 2 of my Twelve Days of Christmas Goodies countdown is all about chocolate. These classic cookies are the most popular holiday treat in our house every year. In fact, I made this recipe last week, it made 82 cookies, and they're already gone! My husband and kids could not keep their hands off them.

2 cups granulated sugar
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled slightly
½ cup cooking oil
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar

In a large bowl, combine eggs, granulated sugar, melted chocolate, oil, baking powder, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Gradually beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Divide dough in half. Cover and chill overnight.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a large cookie sheet; set aside. Place confectioner’s sugar in a small bowl. Shape dough into 1/2-inch balls. Roll balls in confectioner’s sugar to coat generously. Place balls 1 inch apart on prepared cookie sheet. Press down lightly with fork dipped in flour. Bake in the preheated oven about 8 minutes or until edges are set and tops are dry. Do not over bake cookies. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; let cool. Cookies will deflate slightly upon cooling. Makes about about 72 small cookies.
