Today, I posted a Reels video of these easy chocolate crinkle cookies with a fun twist to the classic recipe! They are essentially fudgy, brownie-like cookies topped with powdered sugar, which are the perfect holiday treat! There are so many ways to change it up, and this recipe will be incorporating Abuelita chocolate.
Abuelita is a chocolate brand by Nestlé, and it comes in the form of tablets, syrup, or powdered mix. It’s used to make Mexican-style hot chocolate and it is soo rich in flavor.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 3/4 cups white granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup oil (to your preference)
- 1 whole Abuelita tablet
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 4 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- In one large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. After it is mixed, set it aside.
- Grind your Abuelita chocolate tablet. I chopped it into fine pieces, but you can also use a grate. You can mix it with the cocoa powder, or keep them separate.
- In another bowl, mix the oil and sugar together until it makes a wet sand-like mixture. If you are using a stand mixer, make sure to pause the mix to scrape down the sides.
- Add in your Abuelita chocolate and cocoa powder, and mix on low. If you are using a stand mixer, make sure to pause the mix to scrape down the sides.
- Add in the eggs, one by one. After it is mixed, add in the vanilla. You can also do 1 teaspoon Vanilla, and 1 teaspoon of Peppermint extract.
- Add in the flour mixture and mix on low. If you are using a stand mixer, make sure to pause the mix to scrape down the sides.
- Place the mixture into a sealed or air-tight container, and refrigerate overnight. I recommend refrigerating it for at least 6 hours.
- Preheat oven to 350 F. Use a tablespoon to scoop out the chilled dough and roll them into small balls.
- Dip the balled dough into a bowl of powdered sugar and roll it around.
- Place the powdered balls onto a parchment baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let it rest for 8-10 minutes to let the center finish baking as it cools out of the oven.
After it has cooled, serve yourself a cup of milk and enjoy!
