Favourite recipes – chocolate crinkle cookies

It was my birthday not very long ago and one of my birthday presents was an oven! Some of you might think this isn’t a very interesting present but in Hong Kong, most flats don’t have ovens so we have been oven-less for the last year or so. But now that we have one again, my thoughts have turned to baking…

Being very heavily pregnant at the moment means I don’t really have much energy for baking things right now but I thought I’d share a recipe that I came across on another blog. Whenever I bake this I get lots of compliments and people asking for the recipe so it must be good!

The recipe is for chocolate crinkle cookies, which come out nice and chewy and very chocolatey! You can find the recipe here.


As the recipe is from an American website, many of the quantities are in cups, which doesn’t make a lot of sense to a Brit like me. So here are the quantities I use in British measurements:

170g melted butter
75g cocoa powder
225g sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla essence
150g flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
350g chocolate chips

Let me know if you try the recipe and how it turns out! I hope it’s a hit for you as much as it is for me :)

Thanks for reading!
