Chocolate Crinkles

Roberta B.

1 1/2 c sugar
1/2 c cooking oil
3 1-oz squares unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
2 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
1/4 c milk
2 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
confectioner's sugar

Combine first 4 ingredients. Beat in eggs, one at a time; beat well after each. Stir in milk. Stir flour and backing powder together. Stir into egg mixture. Chill. Using 1 tablespoon dough for each, shape into balls; roll in powdered sugar. Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10 to 12 minutes. While warm, roll again in powdered sugar. Makes 4 dozen.

Growing up I always made a double batch of these. One year my sister put salt in the container that normally held sugar and didn't change the label. I didn't know about the switch and ended up putting in 3 cups of salt instead of sugar. My mom couldn't figure out why the batch didn't stick together even after keeping it in the refrigerator longer than usual. When we tasted it we finally figured out why it wouldn't stay together. We had to throw out the entire double batch of mix and start all over again.
