One of my most favorite things is cooking, do I have any other cooks or bakers here?? I also LOVE to follow food blogs and look forward to reading updates from the blogs I follow a few times a week!

One of my most favorite blogs is How Sweet Eats, and I have every cookbook Jessica has published. Her blog is the very first one I started reading, and I’ve been hooked ever since!

Leave me some of your favorite food blogs to follow! I always need more!

I’m sharing a recipe for chocolate crinkle sprinkle cookies from her latest cookbook, The Pretty Dish today! These cookies are adorable and so festive! Enjoy!

Chocolate Crinkle Sprinkle Cookies

recipe from The Pretty Dish by Jessica Merchant of How Sweet Eats

makes about 2 dozen of the cutest cookies ever

1 cup ap flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3/4 cup sugar

1/3 cup vegetable oil

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine cocoa powder, sugar, and oil on medium speed until combined. 

Add in the eggs one at a time until fully incorporated. Add in the vanilla extract. 

Add in the flour mixture. The mixture will be quite runny. 

Remove the bowl from your mixture, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight. 

After refrigerating, cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper and pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 

Add sprinkles to a small bowl. 

While the oven pre-heats, remove dough from the fridge. 

Using a medium-sized cookie scoop, scoop dough (they will be quite thick and sticky!) and roll into balls with your hands. 

Completely immerse the dough ball in sprinkles and roll until covered. 

Place on cookie sheet. Continue with all of the cookie dough, spacing the dough balls about 1 1/2 inches apart. 

Bake for 10 – 12 minutes until cookies have spread and have set. Make sure the cookies have cooled completely before removing from the cookie sheet. 


** There are SO many types of sprinkles that these cookies would be perfect for any and all occasions. Use red, white, and blue for July 4th; green and red for Christmas parties; super bright and colorful for birthdays, etc. 

I love the sprinkle medleys from Sweetapolita
