So, now you know what our family enjoys for desserts during the holidays from the past few posts that include: Hello Dolly Bars, Peppernuts Cookies and now these delicious Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.

We made these a few days ago and because we have made them every Christmas, our oldest son said that they just taste like Christmas to him! I agree!

I have also heard of these called Double Chocolate Treasures, and the double chocolate is because you will melt some of the chocolate chips to make the chocolate cookie dough, but some of the chocolate chips will go into the dough, so in these cookies you get both chocolate dough and chocolate chips.

Stir after every 30 seconds of cooking to make sure the chocolate doesn’t burn. After the last ½ minute of cooking stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

    1. Hi Luann,

      Yes, they will mail well, just make sure you have them in an air tight container and you use wax paper between each layer and to take up any extra air space so they don’t bounce around during shipping.
