Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

There’s no debate or doubt concerning my favorite cookie on planet Earth. Just FYI or for future reference, any kind that contains chocolate in any form – chips, chunks, dipped, cocoa, kisses.

To be honest, I had no knowledge about crinkle cookies whatsoever up until November 2017. I just didn’t know there existed something called “crinkle” cookies. While participating in holiday cookie contests on Instagram, I came across these ugly yet adorable and scrumptious looking cookies and all I wanted to do was hop inside my mobile screen, grab a handful and stuff them in my face. The rest was involuntary.

I adapted the recipe from WhatsGabyCooking . I used half of all the ingredients to yield a smaller batch. I adore Gaby and her amazing food. Here’s the recipe I made and I really hope you whip up a batch to dunk them in milk and demolish till the last crumb.
