Chocolate Crackle Cookies are a fudgy, delicious and easy-to-make treat. Rich and decadent chocolate dough balls are rolled in powdered sugar and baked until cracks form on the outside. These brownie-like Chocolate Crackle cookies are perfect for parties, holiday gatherings and cookie exchanges.
We love simple and easy treats, and these cookies are a chocolate lover’s dream. Similar to brownies, this cookie recipe calls for lots of eggs and cocoa powder to keep the center of the cookies soft, chewy and loaded with chocolate.
After mixing the wet and dry ingredients in two GoodCook Touch 5 Qt Mixing Bowls, the ingredients are combined and the dough is placed in a resealable freezer bag and chilled in the fridge overnight. Chilling the dough helps to keep the cookies perfectly formed when baking.
When ready to bake, line a GoodCook 15×21” Mega Cookie Sheet with Sweet Creations Natural Parchment Paper. The parchment paper is chlorine-free and non-stick, so there’s no need to grease the baking sheet. Form 1” balls with the dough and roll in powdered sugar. Bake the sugar-coated dough balls until cracks form on the outer layer and the cookie is set.
Now you’ve got a big batch of indulgently fudgy and delicious cookies to share!
