I’m all about rich, decadent, chocolate desserts like chocolate chip brownie cheesecake, brookies, flourless chocolate brownies, cake mix Oreo cookies, and s’mores frozen hot chocolate.

Why are these chocolate crinkles so decadent? I’ve taken your classic chocolate crinkles recipe and kicked it up a notch by adding a titch of instant espresso powder (optional but I highly recommend it) to enhance the chocolate flavor. I also threw in mini semisweet chocolate chips because double chocolate is always better than single chocolate.

.Doesn’t the crinkled powdered sugar look super snowy on top of all that chocolate goodness? It’s like these double chocolate crinkle cookies were meant to be eaten while listening to Harry Connick Jr. belt out the lyrics to “Let It Snow.”

By the way, When My Heart Finds Christmas is in the top three of my all-time favorite Christmas CDs and not just because Harry signed it for me years after I purchased it. It wouldn’t be the holidays in our home (or our minivan) without Harry Connick Jr.!
