12 Days of Cookies: Chelsea's Crinkle Cookies

Ho ho ho y'all!! The Christmas season is upon us and it's my favorite time of year. One of my favorite things about the holiday season is BAKING ALL THE COOKIES!!! (Read in your best Clark Griswold voice. Because it's the hap-hap-happiest time of the year) Last year I started a cookie series here that featured awesome recipe favorites from readers and fellow bloggers. This year I am continuing the tradition! Over the next twelve days I'll be sharing recipes submitted by a few really rad guest posters. This is a great way to add to your holiday recipe box!

Today's cookie is brought to you by vlogger Chelsea Jarvis. Enjoy!

These are my MOST favorite Christmas cookies! I remember baking these with my mom and grandma when I was a little girl, and now my boys help me make them every year! Below is the recipe:


Recipe from Hershey’s Chocolate Cookbook

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 1/3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • powdered sugar

Combine granulated sugar and oil in large bowl , add cocoa, beat until well blended. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

Stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to cocoa mixture, beating well.

Cover and refrigerate until dough is firm enough to handle, about 2-3 hours.

Heat oven 350 F. Grease cookie sheet or line with parchment paper. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in powdered sugar to coat. Place 2 inches apart on prepare cookie sheet.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when touched lightly and tops are crackled. Cool slightly then remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely!
