Chocolate Crinkles

Oh my goodness.  These chocolate crinkles are my new favorite cookies.  
They are like little brownie cookies.  And they're fun and easy to make.  My nine year old daughter made the dough.  Then all of my kids helped roll the dough balls in powdered sugar.

They're irrestible, even to a cute little almost one year old!

I let him enjoy his cookie.  Aren't I a nice mom?  Ha!
