BEST CHOCOLATE CRINKLE COOKIES EVER

We are less than 2 weeks away from Christmas, and I’m pretty much done with buying presents for everyone.

But then I thought it would be quite nice for the older ladies and gents, and general foodies in the family who might be more appreciative (and surprised!) to receive something a little homemade from myself.

I say surprised because I hate cooking.

I would never think to bake cookies or cakes in my spare time – to me it’s too stressful and anything I make always seem to go wrong, so for parties or dinners I would much rather pick something nice up from M&S in some fancy packaging and present that instead – haha!

I decided to pick something pretty easy and festive looking for my first attempt, so I googled ‘Chocolate Crinkle Cookies’, and the first recipe that came up was from Betty Crocker

| WHAT YOU NEED

  • 1/4 Vegetable Oil
  • 2 oz Chocolate Powder
  • 1 Cup of Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Cup of Plain Flour
  • 1 Tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp of Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Of Icing Sugar

I tweaked the recipe slightly to fit in with what I already had in the cupboards

So instead of using melted chocolate, I’ve used chocolate powder

And instead of making an ambitious 72 cookies, I halved everything to make just 36
