Chocolate Crinkles

Do you have a chocolate craving?  Chocolate Crinkles are the solution.  These cookies are easy to prepare and require refrigeration prior to baking.  You can make the dough early in the day and then bake the cookies later in the day.  Form the dough into balls and roll then into a dish of confectioners’ sugar  and bake.  They puff as they bake and make an incredible looking cookie, besides being absolutely delicious.
