Chocolate Crinkles ( Snow Caps )

 
How is the Christmas preparation going on ?? Well at  my side, I am super busy baking these days...I have to gift  my friends and teachers of  lil A nursery something and I couldnt think of anything other than home baked goodies...I wanted to gift something which looked beautiful and thats why I choose this Chocolate crinkles  which I had bookmarked from Nisha's space long time ago. Baked 2 batches of it yesterday and already  gifted two bags of it, one bag for a friend who is flying away for Christmas and one  for my neighbour who is  expecting a baby for Christmas ! I did save some for us before giving away everything and we all loved it :) Thanks to Nisha for sharing this fools proof recipe !

 

Ingredients (makes around 25 cookies)
 
Plain flour - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Dark Chocolate(good quality ) -1/2 cup
Brown sugar tightly packed - 1/2 cup (if u add less sugar  cookies  will be bitter )
Egg -1
Oil - 2 1/2 tbs
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
Icing sugar - As required

Method
 
1.In a heatproof bowl add chocolate and melt it over a hot simmering pan of water.
2.Remove from heat and add sugar and stir it until it is dissolved slightly.
3.Add oil,egg,vanilla extract and give it a good mix.
4.Finally add flour - baking powder and mix again.
5.Cover it with a ling film and chill it fir 2 hours.
6.Take 1/2 tbs of cookie dough and roll into small  balls.
7.In a plate take  icing sugar and roll the cookie bals to give  a nice coating of icing sugar.Once u finish coating the balls give a quick coating to the balls which u coated first as they might have absorbed the icing sugar u coated earlier.
8.Place them in baking tray few inches apart and bake at 175 degree celcius for 13 minutes.
