mom's chocolate crinkle cookies
These are a variation of a choco-nut crinkle recipe my mom used to make. They are a cinch to make and taste rich and chocolatey. I decided to make these for my niece who is serving a mission in Nebraska. When I asked her what she likes she said chocolate + mint. I just got back from the post office where I sent a whole lot of Christmas Merry"mint". I hope she has a sweet tooth!
mom's chocolate crinkle cookies (my mom)
1 chocolate cake mix
1 stick butter. melted
1 tablespoon water
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or white or mint or butterscotch...)
In a bowl, combine chocolate cake mix, butter, egg and water. Add 1 cup chocolate chips. Form into 1-inch balls and bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.
What I have to say- my mom always used oil but I find that they stay fresh longer if you use butter instead. This time I dipped the cookies in crushed candy canes before baking.
