Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup salted butter, at room temperature
- 2 eggs, at room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar (for rolling cookies)
- Assorted Hershey Kisses
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix until combined. Stir in flour mixture. Cover bowl and refrigerate dough at least an hour until firm.
Meanwhile unwrap the Hershey kisses, place in a bowl, and freeze until ready to use.
Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, place powdered sugar into a bowl; set aside.
Scoop dough into 1/2 Tablespoon balls, roll in powdered sugar, and place on baking sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes, until cookies crackle and begin to look "cakey."
Remove from oven and immediately press a frozen kiss into each cookie. Remove cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely. Don't touch until the chocolate is set and no longer shiny.
