Chocolate Crackle Cookies

Chocolate crackle cookies (also called chocolate crinkle cookies) are balls of chocolate dough rolled in powdered sugar. As they bake, the top becomes crackly and bits of chocolate cookie peek through. Bake sales, potlucks and cookie exchange parties are a great time to make these chocolate crinkle cookies.
