Cookies For Your Sweetheart…

For Valentine’s Day, I do like to make my boys and husband a sweet treat to celebrate after dinner. So this year I’m sharing with you, my family’s favorite chocolate fudge crinkle cookies!

They have become tradition, and I make them every year and only once a year because they are just too delicious to have around more than once a year … or at least that’s what my waistline likes to whisper to me!

These cookies are also quick and easy… Which is a requirement in my kitchen! You only need four, yes, FOUR, ingredients to make them.

  • One box of chocolate cake mix
  • Two eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • Powered sugar

To start, mix the cake mix, eggs, and oil, by hand in a large bowl. Once thoroughly mixed let sit for a few mins and preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prep a baking sheet with parchment paper. In another bowl add powdered sugar.

With clean hands, divide the dough into twelve equal pieces. Roll dough into equal sized┬áballs, and one by one drop into the powdered sugar coating completely and shaking off any excess sugar. Spread them out evenly on your baking sheet. I do six at a time to give ample space so they don’t touch. Bake for 8-10 mins. You want the center to still be soft. Let cool on the pan for 3 mins, the center will still keep cooking but the edges will harden. Remove to rack to finish cooling.

Voila! Yummy, chocolatey, mouth watering crinkle cookies! Serve with a cold glass of your favorite milk, or be like me and serve with a cup of coffee!

Happy Valentine’s day!
