Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Chocolate Crinkles are deliciously soft, brownie-like cookie that are coated in a generous coating of confectioners sugar. The name "Crinkle" probably refers to how the powdered sugar "crinkles" or "cracks" as the cookies bake, revealing a little of the chocolate underneath. This recipe is adapted form Simply recipes.

This cookie is perfect for to celebrate Christmas; we all especially my kids love these delicious snack!

Try this and enjoy with your family and friends!
