Crinkle cookies have a rich, fudgy centre and sugar-dusted crispy edge. Will be loved by kids and adults!


  • 60g cocoa powder, sieved
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 60ml vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 180g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 70g icing sugar


Mix the cocoa, caster sugar and oil together. Add the eggs one at a time, whisking until fully combined.

Stir the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt together in a separate bowl, then add to the cocoa mixture and mix until a soft dough forms.

Heat the oven to 180C.

Pour the icing sugar into a shallow dish.

Form a heaped teaspoon of the dough into a ball, then roll in the sugar to coat.

Repeat with the remaining dough, then put, evenly spaced, on a baking tray lined with baking parchment.

Bake in the centre of the oven for around 10 minutes.

Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool – the cookies will firm up as they cool.
