These cookies came out divinely as well! I am not a huge chcolate-anything lover, but these are delicious. My family knew these cookies by an old-world Italian cookie recipe, and I knew these cookies as a chocolate crinkle cookie. Whatever you call these little delights, they are fudgey and rich and the powdered sugar gives them an added sweetness that makes the sun shine just a little brighter when you eat one...or two...or three...you get the idea!
