Chocolate Crackle Cookie Recipe

Chocolate Crackle Cookies have now become my go to cookies for every occasion (even if that occasion is a saturday night Gilmore Girls binge), they’re super easy to make and taste so good I can’t stop my self from eating them 24/7!!

They’re less dense than your typical cookie so they remind me more of a brownie crossed with a cookie which is pretty much just double the sweet treat so I’m not complaining. When you bake them the top crackles and the icing sugar adds a little extra something looks wise and most definitely taste wise. They’re chewy on the inside and ahhh I just can’t stop raving about them!! I promised my friend I’d save her some but I may have accidentally ate them all within 2 days… my bad, but I’ll be making these so often one day I’m sure she’ll get to try one (she better be quick though).

I’m a sucker for a cookie, wether it be a fancy cookie from a gourmet bakery or a homemade cookie I lovvve them all. And let’s be real here for a second nothing beats chocolate!! Chocolate ice-cream, chocolate sauce, chocolate cake… I can’t stop eating everything chocolate whenever I get the chance, and these cookies most definitely tick all the boxes. Anyway I think I’ve rambled enough about my love for them and you probably want to know how to actually make them so you can experience the lushness with me so let’s get into the recipe.
