  • Baking Powder
  • Kosher Salt
  • Powdered Sugar– Rolling the cookies


  • 3 Mixing BowlsOne small bowl for mixing the wet ingredients, and a medium bowl for mixing the dry ingredients. Plus an additional small bowl for rolling the cookies in powdered sugar.
  • Whisk– Mixing the dry & wet ingredients ingredients
  • Rubber Spatula– Folding the wet ingredients into the dries

My Kinda Professional Tips For Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

  • As with all recipes, making sure everything is ready to go before you get baking and assembling
  • Make sure your baking powder is up to date! The first time I tested this recipe my baking powder was old and I actually hadn’t baked for a while (yes this was a while ago, but sometimes you have to come back to projects). My cookies were just super flat and crispy. Ideally they should be soft, chewy, and somewhat raised.
  • If your powdered sugar is lumpy, make sure to sift it. There is nothing worse than a cookie with lumpy powdered sugar on the outside. The coating should be even.
  • The powdered sugar is totally optional! To be honest I tried it with freeze-dried strawberry powder and WOW! So get creative!
  • As with most cookies, they are best when slightly warm. Let cool 15 minutes for the perfect bite of cookie.
  • These cookies will last up to 5 days at room temperature when well wrapped in plastic or in a close-able container. The cookie dough will last the same covered in the fridge and up to one month in the freezer!
