Jackson Hole Bed and Breakfast Recipes- Chocolate Crinkles

Jackson Hole Bed and Breakfast Recipes

One of our favorite Jackson Hole Bed and Breakfast Recipes is for a scrumptious little cookie called the chocolate crinkle.  These cookies are usually made as crinkles, with powdered sugar coating the chocolate cookie.  You can also dress them up with various additions for a variety of different chocolate cookies.

Check out the original recipe from Simply Recipes here, which you can add some twists to that we mention below.

Chocolate Crinkles Recipe

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder                2 cups all-purpose flour

1.5 cups white sugar                                        2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup vegetable oil                                       1/2 tsp salt

4 eggs                                                                 1 cup confectioners sugar

2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • In a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment beat together the cocoa powder, white sugar, and vegetable oil until it comes together into a shiny, gritty, black dough of sorts.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing for 30 seconds each.  Add the vanilla and beat in thoroughly.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Mix into the chocolate mixture on low speed until just combined.  Do not overbeat.  Cover the dough with plastic wrap and chill the dough for four hours or overnight.
  • Preheat the over to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.  Place the confectioner’s sugar in a wide bowl.  Using a rounded teaspoon, or small scooper, get clumps of the chilled dough and roll them into 1 inch balls using your hands.  Roll the balls in the confectioner’s sugar and place on the cookie sheets (you should be able to get 12-16 on each sheet).  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Allow to cool a minute or two on the sheets before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Fun modifications:

  • Add one or two drops (no more than that) of peppermint extract after you add the vanilla extract.
  • If you’re in the mood to add some color to these cookies, you can skip the powdered sugar step and, instead, sprinkle crushed peppermint candy on top of each cookie.
  • You may stir peanut butter chips into the cookie dough before chilling.  If you do this, I would skip the powdered sugar step.

These cookies aren’t crinkles anymore if you make some of these modifications, however they are still quite delicious.  Here at Inn on the Creek, chocolate crinkles are one of our favorite cookies to make from our Jackson Hole Bed and Breakfast Recipes list, as well as to enjoy.
