- 1/2 cupmini semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cuppowdered sugar

What You’ll Need
- baking sheet
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place butter in a large heatproof bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals until completely melted. Alternatively, in a small pot, melt butter over medium heat, then pour into a large heatproof bowl.
Make cookie dough
Add granulated sugar and cocoa powder to bowl with melted butter and whisk to fully combine. Add vanilla extract and 1 egg and whisk until mixture is shiny. Stir in flour, baking powder, chocolate chips, and ⅛ teaspoon salt to fully combine. Chill cookie dough in freezer to harden slightly, 10 minutes.
Place powdered sugar in a medium bowl. Once dough has hardened slightly, using your hands, divide and roll into 12 equal balls (roughly 2 tablespoons of dough per ball)—be careful not to overhandle, though, as the warmer the dough gets, the more difficult it will be to form. Working 1 at a time, transfer dough balls to bowl with powdered sugar and toss to fully coat.
Place dough balls on prepared baking sheet, spacing apart, and bake until outside is slightly crisp with a crackled appearance, about 13 minutes.
Allow chocolate crinkle cookies to cool, 5-10 minutes. Dig in—glass of milk optional!
