For my 3rd A-Z Blogging Challenge entry, I will share our (my officemates and I’s) first attempt to make chocolate crinkles.

Disclaimer: We are not professionals. Lol.

If you’re an avid visitor of my blog, you already know by now that I bake cupcakes from time to time. But this time, I tried my hand on crinkles as per my officemate’s request. It was a Valentine’s Day favor that I couldn’t say “no” to.

Enough blabbering. Here is the step-by-step guide! Recipe followed: this one. We just improvised with the ingredients.

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Ingredients:
4 tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 granulated sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup powdered (confectioners) sugar
2 eggs

Procedure:
1. Combine butter and cocoa powder in a microwaveable bowl. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute, then stir.

4. Add the flour and baking powder into the mixture. Stir with a spatula until it becomes a soft dough.

6. Remove from the refrigerator. While bringing the dough to room temperature, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

7. It’s time to shape the dough! Form small balls by hand. Then, completely cover the dough balls with powdered sugar by rolling them on it.

8. Place on the cookie pan after (or in this case, my muffin pan since I don’t have any cookie sheets. Ugh.) Bake for 10-15 minutes. After that, let them cool for 5 minutes.

They weren’t what we’re expecting them to be, but they taste good. *thumbs up* I just wish they cracked more and were softer to bite. They’re not so hard; it’s just that they’re not chewy. Oh well. Beginners! I’m sure we’ll have plenty of time to improve our crinkle-making skills.

The hard work was worth it, though– my officemate pulled it all off and I think the girl appreciated the crinkles.

Note to self: buy a cookie pan! Hahaha. Till the next baking session! 😉

Happy blogging (and baking)!
