Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Halloween is right around the corner, so I have a fun cookie recipe to share with you on the blog today.  You may remember my Strawberry Crinkle Cookies recipe from earlier this year?  Well guess what?  This is the chocolate version!  They are only four ingredients, they are super easy to make, and they are perfect for Halloween parties and gatherings.  

Buy It

1 box chocolate cake mix
1 egg lightly beaten
8 oz. tub of Cool Whip
1 cup powdered sugar

Make It

1.    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.    Lightly grease cookie sheets and set aside.

3.    In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, egg, and cool whip.

4.    Pick up dough by the tablespoon, roll into balls, and then roll in the powdered sugar.  Be extremely generous with the sugar… you want to make sure that each ball is completely coated.  And do note that the dough will be really sticky.  It’s kind of tough getting the balls covered in the sugar at first, but you’ll get the hang of it quickly.

5.    Place balls of sugar rolled dough on cookie sheets and slightly pat them flat.  You can even sprinkle some extra powdered sugar on the tops if you want to.  :o)

6.    Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges start to turn golden brown.

This recipe makes 18-24 cookies depending on the size. 

You could even make them kid-friendly and more Halloween-y by adding orange M&M eyes and mouths or you could dress them up with some festive candy corns!  So many fun things to do to dress these up!

They are light and fluffy and you will feel like you can eat 100 of them!  Maybe that’s not a good thing, though?  I’ll let you be the judge.  ;o)

And now it's time for the Tuesday Talk Link Up!
