These soft and decadent chocolate crinkle cookies – dusted with seeming powdered snow – make the perfect treat for the holiday. The recipe for these cookies is pretty much the same across the board, but I changed mine up a bit, using olive oil and adding a dash of espresso to bring out the chocolate flavour. Rich and irresistible, these make a festive addition to your holiday table.
