I can’t believe Christmas is so close. You still have some time to prepare these wonderful Chocolate Crinkles. They are easy to make and absolutely delicious. They are also looking great and are perfect for this time of the year.
225g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)
60g unsalted butter
100g caster sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
icing sugar for decorating
How It’s Made?
Step 1: Mix the flour with the baking powder and the salt. Whip together the eggs and sugar until they lighten in color and double their volume. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler together with the butter. Add the melted chocolate, slightly cooled, to the egg mixture and whip until they combine, then add the sifted flour mix and the vanilla extract. Whip until the flour is well mixed into the batter. We’ll obtain a creamy batter which must be left for at least three hours in the fridge.
Step 2: Form balls the size of a walnut and roll them in icing sugar. Place them on a tray lined with baking paper.
Step 3: Bake them in the oven at 170°C for maximum 10 minutes. Do not over bake them because they must keep a moist center, like a brownie. As soon as you remove them from the oven, let them cool for a while in the tray (because they are very fragile and soft) and then place them on a plate.
