Crunchy on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside.

I had a few attempts at this recipe before I got the right balance of ingredients - well worth the effort.

How to Make Cherry Chocolate Crinkles

Step-by-Step

  1. Put the butter and chocolate into a bowl and place either in the microwave or over a Bain marie. Heat until just melted and combined – do not over heat.
  2. Beat together the caster sugar, eggs and vanilla.
  3. Pour butter mix into the sugar mix and combine well.
  4. Sift together the flour and baking powder and add, a bit at a time, to butter mix.
  5. Combine well, stir in the cherries and then cover bowl with clingflm and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  6. When you are ready to cook the crinkles, preheat the oven to 180C. Prepare a baking tray: grease or line with greaseproof paper or silicone mat. Roll the chilled dough into 1 inch sized balls. Roll each ball into the icing sugar and place on baking tray about 2 inches apart – do not flatten them.
  7. Bake for 9 – 12 minutes until the tops are cracked. Remove from oven and cool on wire racks.
