12 Days of Christmas-Chocolate Crinkles

I used to make these as a kid and I called them “molten lava cookies”. They are cool to watch bake in the oven as they transform from a round ball to a flattened cookie with great cracks and crevices. Not only do they look good but they taste divine with their fudgy brownie like interior. I have not made these for so many years and so happy I did again this year.

These cookies make such a pretty show to any cookie platter or box. They are easy to make too!!
