Chocolate Crinkles for Kris Kringle......

These chocolate melt in your mouth cookies are a big favorite among my friends and family. So easy to do, and just take minutes to make. They may seem gooey to roll into a ball. Just wet your fingertips a bit, and they roll better. And the trick to knowing if they're done is when they form the crinkled top and it starts to set. ENJOY!

Chocolate Crinkles
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
*In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, oil, chocolate and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to chocolate mixture and beat until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or until easy to handle.
*Working with 1 cup of dough at a time, shape into 1-in. balls. Roll in confectioners' sugar. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool.
