Glitter Chocolate Crinkle Cookies Ingredients

  • 2 ounces dutched cocoa powder (1/2 cup) Hersheys is ok too
  • 7 ounces brown sugar 1 cup
  • 2 ounces vegetable oil 1/4 cup
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 5 ounces All-Purpose Flour 1 cup
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons edible glitter



  • In a medium sized bowl, cream together your cocoa powder, sugar and vegetable oil until smooth
  • Add in your vanilla, and eggs one at a time, letting them combine fully before adding the next
  • Add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix until just combined. Scrape the bowl to ensure everything is mixed evenly.
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap and chill for at least an hour to let the flavors develop or you can bake right away if you're impatient.
  • Scoop the dough onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet with a cookie scoop or a tablespoon. Dough will be sticky. (If your dough seems too soft and is unworkable, slowly work in up to 2 tablespoons of flour until desired consistency.)
  • When you're ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350ºF
  • Roll the dough into balls and then cover half with edible glitter.
  • Bake your cookies for 10 minutes. They will be soft when they first come out of the oven but will harden as they cool.
