It may be Santa’s favorite cookie. I’m mean, mine, of course. Who couldn’t use a little extra chocolate and espresso? All wrapped up in a snowy white? At Christmastime no less. It’s gooey, chocolaty… and so delicious.

Double Chocolate Crinkle Cookies with Espresso, a soft and moist, ooey gooey Christmas cookie.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (any variety but I love dark chocolate)
  • powdered sugar for dusting

Instructions

  1. In a stand mixer, combine the cocoa powder, espresso powder, brown sugar and vegetable oil. Mix for a couple of minutes until it's perfectly combined. Mix in the eggs and vanilla until smooth. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt to the chocolate mixture and mix. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
  2. Cover the dough and refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Most often, I refrigerate at least 3 hours.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Measure out about 1 tablespoon of dough. This is where I use my small cookie scoop (affiliate link) to easily make 1-inch balls. Coat each ball in powdered sugar and place on the prepared baking pan.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool for a couple of minutes on the pan before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

This recipe makes just over a couple dozen cookies (I seem to always get 26). It easily doubles and makes 48 cookies and freezes really well.

    Hi. Excited to try the recipe. Do you freeze the cookie dough or the baked cookies?

    1. Stephanie Wilson

      Hi Lauren! I freeze the baked cookies in air-tight containers between layers of either waxed paper or parchment paper. They are our sons favorite cookies. On my baking schedule again next week!
