Chocolate Crackles

IMG_5745

I’ve been eyeballing these cookies since I first saw a recipe for them in a special Martha Stewart holiday cookie magazine printed back in 2006 and again in her Cookies Cookbook. Every time I’ve looked through my magazine, these Chocolate Crackles have always leapt off the page and said make me. Make Me. MAKE. ME.

But I didn’t listen until now. I don’t know why it took me so long, but man, I’m glad I finally did.

They are yummy and soft and just plain pretty. But mostly yummy. Oh and chocolatey of course. Very, very chocolatey.

So really that’s all you need to know, right?

IMG_5586

Start out with 8 ounces of bittersweet chocolate. Oh yeah.

IMG_5593

Melt the chocolate in a saucepan over another pot of simmering water. Then set aside to let cool.

IMG_5624

I transferred it to a heatproof plastic bowl so it could cool a bit more quickly.

And yes, I tested the temp with my finger. And maybe more than once. : )

IMG_5613

While the chocolate cools, mix together the flour, cocoa baking powder and salt…

IMG_5618

… until it’s all combined and beautiful.

Set aside and beat butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in eggs. Mix in vanilla.

IMG_5633

And then add the melted chocolate.

IMG_5644

Add half the flour mixture, some milk and the rest of the flour mixture.

Don’t worry. I’m going to give you a link to the recipe.

Right now. And again at the end, too.

Anyway.

Once it’s all mixed together, divide the cookie dough into four equal parts. Wrap each part in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a couple of hours or until firm.

Now, my cookie dough seemed much more like thick cookie batter, so I also placed it in the freezer to get it a little firmer.

When ready to use, unwrap one section at a time.

IMG_5697

I divided it into 12 pieces with a knife because I found that if I handled it too much, the “dough” was starting to melt from the body temperature of my hands.

But dividing it this way ended up working out pretty good.

Grab one of the small pieces of dough and quickly roll into a 1 inch ball. Every few you roll, rinse and dry your hands to avoid them sticking to your hands too much.

IMG_5661

Roll it in granulated sugar and then roll it in powdered sugar and place on a baking sheet.

Like so.

IMG_5684

Here’s the different stages for reference.

P.S. The recipe link only mentions using one of the sugars, but the one in my magazine calls for both. So I’d do it that way.

IMG_5707

Wow. It was tempting to just leave them like this.

IMG_5671

But then I wouldn’t get to see them do this after they baked.

IMG_5737

They are just so pretty.

IMG_5775

And so so good.

Martha Stewart’s Chocolate Crackles

I love trying new things and then crossing them off my “to bake” list.

How about you? What was the last new thing you baked?

These were the first cookies I made when I got the Martha Cookies cookbook. They are heavenly. I keep meaning to add some peppermint extract to make mint crackle cookies (just like the tasty ones at Panera Bread).

I made peanut butter and jelly rugula (sp). They were so good I didn’t want to share but ended up sharing because I didn’t want to eat them all.

Love your website.

All I have to say is, ‘WOW!!’ Those Chocolate Crackles look scrumptious!!

Well, the last thing I baked were coconut bars (by Paula Giles on http://www.food.com) for a New Year’s Eve potluck…they were soooo yummy, I might add! And it didn’t require many ingredients at all!

I made some yummy cupcakes over the weekend, but you MUST try the salted caramel almond squares in the same 2010 MS Cookies magazine – to die for! I made them a couple weeks ago and, ahem, ate a few too many…

I baked a birthday cake for my sons birthday on the 12th. It had a dog theme so I made the cake like a dog dish and we topped it with coco ball cereal. Looked real! Thanks for the recipe.

Christina said...

I made these for Christmas, and my mom has been making them for years! Except that we call them Chocolate Crinkles. My friend said they’re just like little chocolate brownies wrapped in icing sugar. :-)

Last thing I baked? Ma mere’s soft molasses cookies. Oh, so good!

Aleta said...

Last thing I baked: Old Fashioned Apple Slab from King Arthur Flour website. My son helped me make it, and we used apple juice concentrate to make the glaze. Yep. It was as good as I had hoped it would be.

Hey, I made these recently for the first time, too! Only I didn’t melt any chocolate.

The last new thing I baked were French Meringue cookies, which were… interesting. Not in a bad way.

The last thing I made was Almond Bars. I saw the recipe on Allrecipes.com and thought they sounded really good – and they are delicious! I have a list of recipes I mean to try out. I’m definitely putting your Chocolate Crackles on that list. These look fabulous. I love your website. Thanks for sharing.

Amazing! I’ll be adding these to my evernote (a great way to organize and store links without bookmarking)…

The last new thing I baked was a triple chocolate cheesecake square. I think you’d love it… http://ishouldbecleaningup.blogspot.com/2010/12/triple-chocolate-cheesecake-squares.html

Thanks for all the tips and tricks to make these up! Our family whipped these up right away and all of your pointers made things go a lot faster and smoother! And so delish! Thanks again!

Ashley Larissa said...

We used to make these cookies at the Bakery I worked at! I loved them! I cut them up and put them on top of cupcakes and yumo!

The latest thing I’ve baked, aside from cakepops and cheesecake stuffed strawberries, is another cheesecake. This one is different! I’m attempting to make the crust out of brownies. So I’m playing with the recipe now.

TriGirl said...

The last new thing that I baked was “Faux-stess” cupcakes from http://bakingdom.com (I think she just calls them Hostess cupcakes). If you liked the originals you should try these. My favourite part was (testing) the ganache! Yum!

I made Paula Deen’s Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies at Christmas. They look very similar, but the recipe calls for a boxed cake mix. They were wonderful and so easy to make!

These are great. Try rolling the balls with non-latex gloves on. I’ve found it to be easier than constantly washing my hands and trying to get them dry enough to continue. The cookie doesn’t seem to stick to the glove. I just made a Taste of Home cookie, Crispy double Chocolate cookie. It has melted (like your recipe) chocolate and chocolate chips as well as chopped pecans! MMMMmmmmmm, good.

Sisifo said...

I’ll have to make these this week. Pregnancy cravings give me a right to bake goodies at least 4 times a month. {: Last week I made strawberry sugar cookies. They were so good I’m going to make more tomorrow. I’m a chocoholic, but I’ll have to wait until the weekly shopping trip. Until then, strawberry sugar cookies it is. Thanks for the recipe.

Cakepops. This weekend. And they were freaking exhausting. I have no idea how you do it. Seriously. You must be crazy focused and talented (and/or have no need for sleep.)

Sha said...

the last thing i baked was cream puffs last New Year’s Eve. it was one of the hardest I’ve done (it burnt my finger & lips – due to the caramel) but it was all worth it as the outcome was delish!

Amanda said...

Love these cookies, I have made them many times! The last thing I baked was a 2 layer heart shaped birthday cake for my husband’s aunt. She is 88 years young! You would never know she’s that age, she stills cooks, cleans and takes care of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She’s a wonderful lady..

Melissa Cornwell said...

I make these cookies every Christmas! One of my friends just loves them! She says they remind her of a truffle! Next time I’m gonna add a little instant coffee crystals and call them Mocha Krinkles!

jasmine said...

the last thing i baked were these same cookies but we call them crinkles and also snickerdoodles. I made them with my kids who are 4 and 2. They loved making them. The crinkles were a hit but the snickerdoodles were a miss.

Tabitha said...

My brother is home from college, so I decided to make him cupcake pops because he bought me the book. He ate them and loved them, and he suggested we make ‘brownie bites’- same as cake bites, just with brownies and milk chocolate frosting and chocolate coating- they turned out delicious, and my brother thought they looked like miracle pills from the Princess Bride!

I just baked banana bread with blueberries. Next weekend I plan on making sugar cookies for my grandmothers birthday and decorating them with icing to make them look all fancy.
Thanks for the crinkle cookie recipe. I will try that next. We are still trying to polish off the Christmas baking!

Stephanie said...

I’ve always referred to those cookies as chocolate crinkles. and they are a favorite! I generally make a double batch around the holidays, and find that’s not enough! I planned on making a King cake from scratch this week, though my oven is now broken so I guess I won’t be baking anything new this week. Sigh…

dixie Lee said...

Welcome to the Big Time baby! This is the trademark, landmark, ultimate, don’t bother to come unless I bring them, Christmas cookie.

We call them Crinkles though. And we bake ‘em until they are a little crunchy on the outside with a chewy center….

Oh my. Life is so much better with a few of these on hand…

I made hundreds of these at Christmas – literally – and at the end – I added orange zest from 1 orange – and they were even more amazing – you HAVE to try it.

I love these cookies! Make them every year at Christmas. They are worth the messy hands you get as you roll them into balls.

The last thing I baked was a lemon pound cake that I found from keepitsweet.wordpress.com. It’s very good! I topped it with vanilla frosting that had a little lemon juice mixed in.

I don’t remember the last new thing I baked. I think it was my first attempt at gingerbread houses over the holidays, or chocolate sesame cookies.

My family has made a very similar cookie my entire life. We call them Chocolate Crinkles but they use oil instead of butter in the recipe. From the well warn Betty Crocker Cooky Book (that’s not a misspelling)

The are my absolute favorite cookie and taste just like brownies! Let’s just say I can’t be trusted with a plate of them ;)

Liane said...

My favorite cookie! I call them cocoa crinkles! Glad you made them! Last thing I baked was choco chip cookies. I love Paula Deen’s white choco chip & cherry chunk cookie recipe–except I use the dough and switch out the additions for regular choco chips or choco chips w/ pecans, or whatever. She used 2 tbsp. of milk in the dough and I think that’s what makes it so good!

Kelly Love said...

Okay, hubby took the cookies to work and now everyone thinks I’m wonderful! :-P They were SO good! Hubby made fun of me because I had chocolate all over my face from licking the beaters. I said it was your fault because of your beautiful photos and “permission” to check the temperature of the chocolate.

I made these cookies but using a slightly different recipe I found online. Easy to make and everyone who tried it loved it. Thanks for the tip on freezing and dividing the dough. I will try that next time. It can get tough to handle when the dough is not chilled.

Michelle said...

These are “grandmother’s cookies” to my family. She used to make them every time she visited and we would devour them like no ones business. I have a hard time making them so that they don’t spread too thin and get crispy, maybe it’s because I didn’t let them get firm enough in the fridge/freezer.
Thanks for the tips though, I’ll be sure to try them! :D

YUM. I love these cookies but I have never made them… I may have to try. The last thing I baked was your cinnamon rolls (or PW’s cinnamon rolls to be exact). I had made them before but tried a simple cream cheese frosting this time around. The last new thing I baked was… gourgeres. They did not turn out quite the way I hoped, so I will be trying those again. I have a huge list of things to make on tastespotting.com (I’m sure you’ve heard of that).

April said...

This recipe is fantastic!!! They taste a lot like brownies!! I was making these with my girls and we didn’t read the recipe well enough to notice that the dough needed to chill for a while. So we refrigerated the dough while we made and ate dinner. After dinner, we just got out one of the wrapped dough sections. We baked up a dozen cookies from it and then ate them warm!! It was the perfect, no mess, after dinner dessert!! We’ll just save the rest of the dough for another day! Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!!

I’m going to have to try your recipe to make them. Over Christmas I made a version I received from AllRecipes and while they tasted delicious, they just didn’t have the beautiful crackle.

I’ve had those chocolate crackle cookies (or chocolate glaciers) on my “to bake list” for the longest time and I never get around to trying to make them. Today I baked chocolate sugar cookies for the first time, made with dark chocolate cocoa powder and cut out in heart shapes. They taste like oreos! I might eat them all before I even get to frost and decorate them.

ok…… I found your blog a few months ago and was and still am blown away by it. I loveeee it. I have never posted a comment but I seem to keep returning to your blog so figured I might as well as say something right? LOL. I see such great talent that it leaves me speechles. Too many ideas to keep up with but I am trying :). Anyway, the last things I made were two 8″ double layer cakes with buttercream icing and rolled fondant. It was also my first time trying cake pops. This was for a co-workers baby shower and everyone went ga-ga over them….LOL

Oh btw…… I forgot to mention that I made a gluten-free version of these little clouds of yumminess for a co-worker of mine and they were awesome. I will have to try this recipe though.

I made some Baked Apple ‘Cupcakes’ for breakfast last week. Not your typical cupcake but it’s a fun, healthy way to start the day. And then I don’t feel as guilty eating the cookies when I get home.

These are the best cookies! I make them every year for Christmas Eve. I use the recipe in Nick Malgieri’s book “Chocolate”. He uses a tablespoon of dark rum which makes them AWESOME! We call them the “grown-up chocolate cookies” since the guys devoure them!

Ooooh, those look pretty. Chocolate crackles have been on my list since I saw them on He-eats.com before Christmas! Think I’ll give them a go this weekend :) Lemon Meringue Pie is on the list too – my mum used to love how my Gran baked it so I’m going to give it a go for her birthday!

Ina Garten’s Easy Sticky Buns! They were actually very easy and very, very, sinfully good. (And before that cake pops! ;-)

Like some of the other Aussies – just wanted to comment that chocolate crackles in Australia are known as something completely different. They are puffed rice and chocolate and are a classic kids birthday treat. You should try them!

I just wanted to say hi and tell you that I love your blog. I’ve spent the last few days reading through your archives Cake pops are so cute. I can’t wait to get your book. I am a little sad I didn’t discover your blog while you were on tour. :(

Oh, and I’ve made cookies very similar to these. I’ve always called them black and whites though. They are very yummy.

Yum, I was going to make crackle top molasses cookies but these look better all of a sudden. The last thing I checked off my to-bake list was carob pecan scones! I love carob chips.

The last thing I made was flourless…gluten free cookies…two different kinds. Chocolate pecan and Peanut butter. They were delicious! I don’t have celiac disease but know 3 people that are. One lives across the street and received some. My family did not notice they were different.

Oh I have to add these to my ‘to bake’ list…and beautiful photos. I am sure they look twice as yummy just because of them.

Yes! These look like the Chocolate Crinkles in the Better Homes & Garden cookbook my mom had when I was a kid (and that I may or may not now have in my house… ;)). I LOVE these. LOVE them! She always made them at Christmas so, to me, they’re Christmas cookies. :)
