Chocolate Crackle Cookies


December was a month of holidays, family time and lots and lots of eating. Specifically, a time of many sweets and assortments of cookies.

Someone at worked baked these chocolate crackle cookies for the office and after giving them a taste, I knew they were something I needed to try making for myself!

The combination of the soft almost fudgy like center and a light dusting of powdered sugar on top make these an all star holiday cookie to carry into the New Year!



  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs, beaten lightly
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
  • ¼ cup mini chocolate chip


  1. In a bowl  stir together flour, granulated sugar, cocoa, baking powder, salt, and blend in butter. Stir in egg and vanilla until mixture is blended.
  2. Fold in  ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
  3. Spread dough in a thin layer in bowl and freeze 10 minutes, or until firm.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°F and lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
  5. Put 4 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar in a small bowl. Roll each piece of dough into a small ball  then roll the dough ball in the confectioners’ sugar.
  6. Arrange balls 2 inches apart on baking sheets, bake for 7-8. ( I did 7 because they taste better when soft) Cool cookies on racks.
