Chocolate Crinkles

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

It has been a long while since I made any entries in my blog. Please forgive me as I had been up to my neck in work.

My family loves anything chocolate and when I saw this, I knew I need to try this out. I baked this quite some time ago and unfortunately, I did not manage to take any pictures before they were polished off.

Chocolate Crinkles


170 gm dark chocolate
85 gm butter
185 gm plain flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
¾ tsp baking powder
115 gm sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp sea salt


1. Place chocolate and butter in a metal or heat-resistant glass bowl, set it over a pot of simmering water. The bottom of the bowl should not touch the water. When the mixture is glossy and melted, stir and set aside.

2. Sift together flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Set aside. (B)

3. Beat sugar and eggs until thick and smooth. Add vanilla extract and melted chocolate. Mix until combined. Add B and salt, mix till well combined.

4. Scoop dough out into plastic container with tight-fitting lid, cover and refrigerate over night.

5. Preheat oven to 170 deg C. Take dough out of fridge and let soften for 20 min.

6. Line cookie sheet with baking paper. Scoop out generous tablespoons of dough, roll into balls and place on baking tray about 3cm apart. Place unused dough back into fridge.

7. Bake 10-12 min until tops are cracked. Remove from oven, let cookie cool on baking tray for 5 min then transfer to metal rack to cool completely before serving.
