Chocolate Crinkle Cookies


A few years ago these were all over Pinterest for Christmas cookies. I had never seen them before but everyone was talking about how their mom or they used to make these all the time. I didn’t try them.  I am like that. When something is popular I tend to go the other way. Maybe somewhere down the road I will try it but I am not going to read a book, see a movie, or make a recipe because everyone else is.

But, as we were looking for cookies to make this one popped up again and I thought it was time to finally make them.

Verdict:

These were okay. They were not overly sweet and were good for ice cream sandwiches.  I don’t think I would make them for a Christmas cookie but they were okay.

I preferred them in the ice cream sandwiches but they were pretty good if you don’t want an overly sweet cookie.

      I guess I am too honest? They were okay but far better with ice cream!

  3. LOL! When something is popular and all over the place I’m not interested either! 🙂 I want what was popular 50 yrs ago, or what’s not been invented yet.
    However, I’m craving chocolate and these would go down really well just now!

  5. I think these would also work sandwiched with chocolate, Marci. It would create the same taste contrast as the ice-cream.
