A Chocolate Chip Crinkle Cookie is a chocolate chip cookie that is rolled in cane sugar and then rolled in powdered sugar. As the cookies bake and expand in the oven it creates crinkles in the dough where there are portions covered in powdered sugar and crinkles where it splits. This results in a crinkle effect as the cookie spreads in the oven which creates those creases and parts of cookie that are covered in powdered sugar for the iconic crinkle cookie look!

The secret to perfect crinkle cookies is rolling the cookie dough in cane sugar and then powdered sugar. If you only roll it in powdered sugar, it will just evaporate in the oven. Rolling them in cane sugar first gives that powdered sugar something to stick to so it can't just melt into the cookie. No matter what flavor of crinkle cookies you're making, this step is key!

If you love soft and chewy cookies, you'll love this recipe. If you love crinkle cookies, you'll love this recipe. And, if you love chocolate chip cookies, then you will love this recipe! I can't believe no one else is making Chocolate Chip Crinkle Cookies because they are so insanely delicious!

There seems to be a crinkle cookie for all flavors – Chocolate Crinkle Cookies, Pumpkin Spice Crinkle Cookies, Easy Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies and even more. However, I have never seen a Chocolate Chip Crinkle Cookie before. I even did a quick Pinterest search, and nothing came up.

So, this recipe is either going to not get any views because no one wants a Chocolate Chip Crinkle Cookie, or it's going viral. I hope the latter, because these Chocolate Chip Crinkle Cookies are insanely good! They are soft, chewy, full of mini chocolate chips, and coated in that extra sweet powdered sugar. Delaney is obsessed with them, and if you know Delaney, you know he's so picky and very critical of the things I make. And if it's really good, he says don't share with anyone and that's what he said about these!

Why You'll Love This Recipe

Combines Two Classics: This recipe for Chocolate Chip Crinkle Cookies combines two classics — traditional soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies and crinkle cookies. You get the best of both in one cookie!

Soft & Chewy: These Chocolate Chip Crinkle Cookies are soft and chewy.

Mini Chocolate Chips: I use mini chocolate chips in this recipe which means you get more chocolate in every bite! I'm obsessed with the Organic Mini Dark Chocolate Chips from Nuts.com as they are vegan, soy free, and have no stabilizers, which makes them an amazing chocolate for literally anything!

Ingredients

Salted Butter: The first ingredient in these Chocolate Chip Crinkle Cookies is organic salted butter. My favorite is Organic Valley, and my next favorite is Costco, which is what I buy when I can't get Organic Valley.

Cane Sugar: I usually use Costco Organic Cane Sugar as they have the 10-pound bags. And that's what I used in this recipe. You can also use Wholesome, Florida Crystals, or even O Organics from Vons!

Dark Brown Sugar: I will always make my own Homemade Dark Brown Sugar, and that's what I used in this recipe.

Vanilla Extract: Simply Organic Vanilla Extract is my favorite vanilla extract, and it's what I used in these cookies. I find it has the most pure vanilla flavor.

Eggs: My favorite eggs are Organic Valley, but any large organic eggs will do.

All Purpose Flour: I used Cairnspring Mills Organic All Purpose Flour in this recipe. Other brands I like and that will work are Giusto's, Central Milling, King Arthur, and even the O Organics from Vons.

Baking Powder: I use aluminum free baking powder, from Frontier Co-Op.

Baking Soda: I use aluminum free baking soda, from Frontier Co-Op.

Mini Chocolate Chips: I used organic mini chocolate chips from Nuts.com for this recipe, I love their mini chocolate chips!

Powdered Sugar: I used Florida Crystals Organic Powdered Sugar for dipping, but Wholesome is also great and will work well.
