Quick Chocolate Crinkles

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by LAURIE

Yes, these are messy to make, but well worth it. Seems the kids like to make these probably because of the stickiness. My 17 yo can eat the whole batch!

I refrigerated the dough and it was not messy at all to roll the balls in the powdered sugar. I got 40 cookies out of my batch and they came out chewy and chocolately. They took 8-9 minutes in my oven. Very easy recipe for such a great cookie! Thanks for sharing! P.S. I used devil's food cake mix.
