Cookie Perfection: Chocolate Crinkles

The holidays are quickly approaching and I'm SO excited to start baking!

A couple weeks ago, Jhanis teased her fellow Instagram followers with a pic of some Chocolate Crinkles.  She totally sold me, once she explained that they were soft, chewy chocolate cookies, covered in powdered sugar.  
OH. MY.

These taste like devil’s food or soft brownies, and are a perfect remedy to your chocolate craving or cookie exchange.  I triple dog dare you (oh, yes I did) to eat just one!
