Grandma's Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

It makes my heart so happy to know that my kids are requesting baking and cooking supplies for Christmas. I still remember my aunt giving me my first set of cupcake toppers. The container had about 20-30 pieces and I was absolutely clueless on how to use them. However, I thought I was “hot” stuff because I could now decorate my own cupcakes. 

In the past few weeks, they’ve received kid cookbooks and a few baking sets. They are flipping through the pages deciding what recipe is next on the list. One thing remains clear is that they always turn to the dessert section first. I can’t say that I blame them. 

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

This week I brought out my grandmother’s cookbook and went straight to the dessert section. You see a resemblance, don’t you? I stumbled upon these Chocolate Crinkle Cookies and decided to break out the baking supplies for some holiday cookies. It’s never too early to try them out before baking them for others. 

These Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are easy to make and it’s the perfect recipe to incorporate the kids especially if they want cookies. 

My grandmother added chopped pecans to the dish, but I knew my kids would like them better without the extra crunch. If you want something more festive, you could add some peppermint crunch baking chips.
