Chocolate Crinkle Sprinkle Cookes


These cookies were made as a special treat for my grandson, Carter.  When it was my oldest son Scott's birthday, we met for dinner at a fabulous Mexican restaurant in San Clemente which was about half way for each of us. And I just didn't see how I could show up empty handed, so after dinner we made a trip to the car to get the surprise for Carter!!  He was SO happy!  Scott didn't quite understand why HIS son got the special present, but he felt better when Carter shared!! :)





CHOCOLATE CRINKLE SPRINKLE COOKIES
adapted from Brown Eyed Baker

1 c. (142 g) flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. (42 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 c. organic cane sugar
1/3 c. vegetable oil (I prefer to use Spectrum canola and coconut blend)
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla extract (I like to use Mexican vanilla in chocolate recipes)
1/2 c. rainbow sprinkles (or more depending on how generous you are with the sprinkles!!)

In a small bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together.  Set aside.

Beat together the sugar, cocoa and oil until thoroughly blended with an electric mixer.  Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat thoroughly.  Beat in the vanilla.  Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the flour a little at a time, just mixing until combined.  Stir well with a rubber spatula to be sure all of the flour is incorporated.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350.  Line two cookie sheets with parchment and place the sprinkles in a small shallow bowl.

Shape the dough into one inch balls.  Roll each ball in sprinkles and place on prepared sheets, about 2 inches apart. Gently press down on the cookie before baking.

Bake one sheet at a time for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies have spread a little and appear set.  They will remain soft and chewy in the center. Do not overbake.


Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet before removing them to a wire rack.  They will keep up to one week in an airtight container.


These were a huge hit with my grandson!!  Score two points for Grammy! :)  Definitely fun to make as well and you could use a variety of colored sprinkles to fit any occasion imaginable!
