Chocolate Crinkles


Love these.  If you want to make them mint add a teaspoon of mint extract.

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/2 cup oil (your choice- but not Olive Oil)

3 - 1 ounce squares unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled

2 teaspoons vanilla

3 eggs

1/4 cup milk

2 cups all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

powdered sugar for rolling


Combine first four ingredients.  Beat in eggs, one at a time.  Beat until incorporated. Stir in milk. In a separate bowl combine flour and baking powder.  Stir that into the batter.  Chill at least one hour.  Using a tablespoon shape into balls.  Roll in powdered sugar.  Place on greased cookie sheet.  Bake for 10 to 12 minutes at 375F.  While warm, dip in powdered sugar again.  Yield 4 dozen.
