This Filipino-inspired Chocolate Crinkle Recipe is easy to make yet delectable to eat. With just a few ingredients and minimal steps, you’ll have a tray full of heavenly chocolaty goodness. Here’s what you’ll need to make these tantalizing treats:


For the Dough:

-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
-1/2 cup sugar
-1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-3/8 cup vegetable oil
-2 large eggs
-2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the Topping:

-1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar for rolling


Step One

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.

Step Two

In a separate large bowl, beat together the vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla extract until well-combined.

Step Three

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until a dough forms.

Step Four

Cover the bowl with cling film and chill in the refrigerator for at least two hours.

Step Five

Once chilled, preheat your oven to 350F (180C) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step Six

Using an ice cream scoop, shape your dough into round balls and drop into the confectioners’ sugar. Roll the chocolate crinkle balls in the sugar until they are completely coated.

Step Seven

Transfer the coated balls to a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes until the tops have cracked and the cookies are slightly firm.

Step Eight

Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Plus, the topping of confectioners’ sugar provides the perfect amount of sweetness and a nice crunch!
