Delicious chocolate crinkle biscuits recipe

Posted in Recipes.

Want a biscuit that looks super fancy and tastes sensational with its chocolate fudge brownie-like middle? This recipe for chocolate crinkle biscuits is the one.

I reserve my sweet tooth for good biscuits. Cake I can leave, but a really good biscuit – that I’ll snap up in no time. While these biscuits look tricky, I assure you they’re not. You do need to let the mixture sit for a while (preferably overnight) before baking – but it’s absolutely hand-on-my-heart worth it.

Chocolate crinkle biscuits ingredients

  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ¼ vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup icing sugar


  • In a medium size bowl, mix together white sugar, vegetable oil and cocoa powder.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating well between additions. Add the vanilla.
  • In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking powder. Add to the wet mixture and stir until just combined into a dough mix. Cover and leave in the fridge for four hours or overnight.
  • Once rested and cooled, preheat the oven to 170°C. Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls.
  • Roll the balls in the icing sugar and place on a lined oven tray. Leave them as balls, don’t press them flat!
  • Bake for 10 minutes, leave on the tray to cool for five minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.


  • This recipe makes a few dozen biscuits, but I recommend doubling the batch, for these won’t last long before being gobbled up!
