Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are one of my favorite Christmas treats. This year, I had the idea to roll them in finely crushed candy canes, along with the powdered sugar.
The result is a deeply chocolate cookie with just the perfect hint of peppermint. Small flecks of red candy cane make them pretty on the cookie plate.
I baked these up using Pampered Chef products for their 2012 Cookie Swap. I love Pampered Chef. The products are affordable and made for real people cooking at home.
I have quite a few Pampered Chef products already, but I was happy to try some new ones out. The adjustable measuring spoons are fantastic. I didn’t know if I would like them or not, but they’ve already become a favorite. The cookie scoops are fantastic too.
And one thing really surprised me – the cookie sheet. I’ve always baked my cookies on a baking stone. That works great, but this time I used the cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper. The cookies turned out perfectly. No sticking. No burning. Just sweet perfection. I’ll definitely be doing that again.
Below, you can see the assembly process for these cookies. I didn’t roll the dough into balls, but just scooped it into the candy cane powdered sugar and rolled it around. It made the process much quicker and easier than rolling all those balls.
