Chocolate CRINKLE COOKIES
Let’s go back to basics with a simple and delicious gluten free and vegan chocolate crinkle cookie recipe! I say basics because crinkle cookies are an essential staple in any recipe arsenal.
It’s easy to convert Dolled Up Desserts chocolate cake mix into a delicious chocolate cookie, and with the addition of one extra ingredient, those classic and gorgeous crinkles are easy to achieve! The secret is a higher level of baking powder to baking soda. Our baking mixes already contain baking soda and powder, but the additional 1/2 tsp gives the cookie the lift it needs to then fall and crinkle.
Another way to maximize crinkle-age is to open the oven around the 9 minute mark and tap the pan on the oven racks once or twice. This will deflate the cookies at this point, making them crinkle even more.
And DO NOT forget to put icing sugar on the top of these to enhance the crinkle post baking. Be sure to only put sugar on TOP of the cookie. If it is on the bottom, the sugar could burn!
