Chocolate Crackle Cookies
These rich, fudgy Chocolate Crackles are perfect for the holidays, yet yummy enough that you’ll want to make them throughout the year! They’re a striking cookie that’s perfect for a Cookie Exchange.
Why You Must Make
- If your family is full of chocoholics like mine, this is a delicious cookie recipe to add to your repertoire!
- They’re also perfect for the holidays as they look like they’re coated in winter snow!
- Plus they’re super easy to make.
- Make sure your cookie dough is nice and cold. Your hands will still get a coating of chocolate from rolling them, but cold dough will minimize that.
- Sift your powdered sugar to minimize lumps.
- To get the prettiest result, make sure to coat the dough balls well in powdered sugar.
- If you find the chocolate in the cookies is creating yellow areas on the powdered sugar after they’re baked, roll your dough balls in granulated sugar first, then powdered sugar (Tip via America’s Test Kitchen). I did not find this necessary.
- You can keep these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days. They can also be frozen for up to 3 months. Just defrost overnight in the refrigerator.
