Chocolate Crackles

This is probably my favorite cookie recipe ever. They are just so addicting once you start eating them.

Chocolate Crackles

(Moist, Fudgy Type Cookies)

  • 4 squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/2 cup salad oil
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs, unbeaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • (1/2 cup walnuts optional, we've never made it with them)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Melt chocolate in top of double boiler. Remove from water and let chocolate cool some. Blend in oil and sugar and add eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition. Add vanilla. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir into chocolate mixture. Add nuts (ew) and mix thoroughly. Chill soft dough for several hours or overnight. Shape into small balls and roll in powdered sugar. bake on greased baking sheet at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. The powdered sugar coating will crack apart, giving an interesting effect. Makes 6 dozen small cookies.
