Fudge Crinkles

Fudge Crinkle Cookie

For the next couple of posts I am handing the reigns over to my wife Dana!  She was in a Christmas cookie kind of mood and we decided to have a Christmas Cookie Marathon.  Dana is a great baker and here is her first recipe.  Fudge Crinkles.  I have never had these before, but they are like little chocolate pillows of awesomeness!  Dana blew me out of the water with these.

Fudge Crinkles

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, stir the cake mix, oil and eggs by hand until a dough forms.  This is a temperamental dough so you do not want to use a mixer.

Mix till just combined

Coat your hands in confectioners sugar and then shape the dough into 1 inch balls.  You may have to dust your hands a few times.  The dough is really wet, so keep lots of confectioners sugar on stand-by.

Roll into balls

After the dough balls are formed, roll them in even more confectioners’ sugar.  This gives them that sweet snowflake look that you see in the main picture.

Roll in confectioners' sugar

Then place the sugar coated cookie balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Roughly 2-3 inches apart.

Ready to bake

Bake at 350 degrees for 8 – 10 minutes or until the center of the cookie just starts to set.

Perfectly Cooked

Let the cookies cool on the pan for 1-2 minutes and then move the cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling.
