It’s December! Christmas is almost here! I’m sorry I haven’t been posting, we were in Cleveland for an extended trip for Thanksgiving and I decided to truly enjoy our time with family and do as little work as possible! Though, traveling with a toddler for a long trip is not easy. The time change was hard to adjust to and our usual good-sleeper turned into a bad one that also became a stage 5 clinger! Oi. It’s good to be home!

By the way, did you guys see our big announcement that I posted last week?!

Okay, now let’s get to these chocolate crinkle cookies!

I’ve been wanting to try a crinkle cookie recipe for a long time and the holiday season seemed like the perfect time! I love how crinkle cookies look like they’ve been dusted in fresh snow. These cookies are crispy on the outside, but have a soft and chewy center! I add some melted chocolate to this recipe which makes these cookies so rich and chocolatey and gives them a brownie-like texture.

Note that the dough for these cookies requires some chill time. I like to mix it up the night before and then bake them in the morning.

Happy baking season!
