Chocolate Crinkles

Chocolate Crinkles are soft and fudgy chocolate cookies enclosed in confectioners or powdered sugar. A perfect holiday treat : these delightful cookies (baked with lots of love) are good christmas presents for friends or even a luscious christmas dessert to share with the entire family.

It’s good to save some time and money this holiday season. Instead of buying desserts and pastries from the bakeshop, why not make your own? Have you finalized your Noche Buena dessert menu yet? Maybe you can include this in your list along with our Crema de Fruta, Leche Flan, and Maja Blanca.
