Christmas is almost here and the only thing I wish for now is to witness a white Christmas. Fat chance of that happening given that I live in parts of the world where snow just doesn’t exist. But hey, its the stuff my dreams have been made up of lately. Snow…powdery, white snow that is falling on my head as I walk all huddled in warm jackets and cutesy beanies. In my dreams the snow looks like a heavy shower of powdered sugar being sprinkled from the sky. The morning after, I decided to give some form of reality to my dreams and make it snow. It was time to make it happen.

Turns out these chocolate crinkle cookies are just the thing I envisioned. Originally I wanted to try these epic red velvet cookies I saw on Cooking Classy. They looked just what one should gift or eat by the dozens during Christmas. Turns out the color I chose was more raspberry than red, so what originally started as red velvet cookie turned to be pink -ish velvet cookie. Anyways who cares what color it is or what the name is! Fact is it is made of good old chocolate, stuffed further with white chocolate and covered in the snow of my dreams!! Yes, folks this chocolate crinkle cookies is just what I wanted in my life. Turns out our dreams are just a manifestation of our deepest desires. In my case, the desire ,unsurprisingly enough was something chocolate.

  1. You know, I first saw these on Instagram and I was captivated by the photos. I love that brick red colour of the cookie under the blanket of icing sugar. Your styling is spot on and the recipe doesn’t disappoint either! 😀

  2. Hi! I know what you mean about wishing for a white Christmas – the idea is magical! It wasn’t snowy in Normandy where we spent Christmas either but it was still wonderful… :) I absolutely LOVE chocolate crinkle cookies! Yours look delicious and have inspired me to make some this week.
