Chocolate crinkles


A huge batch of Chocolate Crinkles kills several birds with one stone: snacks for us, dessert for another family, treats for Mr. Mordecai to take to work for his one-year anniversary there, and goodies for the Cub Scouts on Wednesday. I hope they hold out: I used six precious eggs on them!

As a side note, I love this recipe because it's very yummy and chocolaty, but it uses vegetable oil instead of butter for the fat, and whole wheat flour works perfectly.

  2. Too funny! I was looking at my cookie recipes and thought about making some chocolate crinkles. I went for some cinnamon jumbles instead but chocolate crinkles were my second choice. :-)

  4. I have never had these! At first glance the recipe seemed extravagant, until I saw that the yield was 6 dozen! These would be perfect for the coffee and snack we have in between Sunday school and Worship. Thanks for sharing!

    Maybe I should ship some avocados to you? Although they aren't grown anywhere near here, they are usually easy to find cheap at Fiesta Foods and a few other markets that cater to the local hispanic population. Thanks for the idea on limeade too.

  7. How funny! I made some a few weeks ago when I was trying to use what I had on hand, too! I didn't use the powedered sugar and instead put vanilla ice cream between for ice cream sandwiches.
