Chocolate Crinkles

For as long as I can remember, my family and I have been making Chocolate Crinkles during the holidays.  They are one of our favorite kinds of Christmas cookies, and every December we get together to bake these cookies (as well as a few other family favorites).  These cookies are moist, chewy, chocolatey, and delicious!

Recipe from: Betty Crocker
