Chocolate Crinkles

I had seen Martha Stewart make these cookies a while ago on her show and it was so delicious to look at that I made it then and there and then made it again maybe once and forgot about it ,so last week I was just looking at a couple of recipes in my diary and came across this one and made it instantly and whoaaaaaaa it was good . The cookies got over within seconds . These are a bit messy to make but it is worth it beacause these are so yummy and so chocolatey , it is just too good so here it is .............


4 oz bittersweet chocolate melted
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup cocoa powder
a pinch of salt
60 gms unsalted butter softened
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract/ essence
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup icing sugar or more for rolling


Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.
In a bowl , beat butter and light brown sugar until light and fluffy .
Add eggs and vanilla and beat for  a couple of min.
Add melted chocolate.
With the mixer on low speed alternate adding dry ingredients and milk till just combined.
The dough will be very sticky by now so wrap it up in a cling wrap and chill the dough for 2 -3 hrs.
Now remove the chilled dough and divide it into half .
Roll them into two logs and cut of small pieces from these logs and make them into round balls .
If the dough is still sticky wrap up the logs seperately  and chill them for 30 min.
Roll the balls in the icing sugar and place them in a baking sheet 2 inches apart and bake them in a preheated 180 c oven for about 12-15 min.
