Easy Chocolate Macaroons

This is a family favorite recipe for Chocolate Macaroons. They are more commonly known as chocolate crinkle cookies, but our family has always referred to them as chocolate macaroons. I have no idea why, but I’m sticking with the family name.

I can remember my mom baking these delicious treats every year at Christmastime among oodles of other delicious cookies.

Because the dough requires refrigeration time, my siblings and I would eat the refrigerated dough faster than she could get the cookies baked. Oh, the dough is pure heaven! I don’t recommend eating it though as it contains raw eggs. When I was a kid, we didn’t think about the ramifications of eating raw cookie dough.

I’m certain my mom would be frustrated with us kids getting into the dough, but she always just mixed up more without complaint.

On to the recipe.

    Don't see 1 cup of sugar in the recipe! Trusting your instructions and tossing it in, lol. Sure the cookies will be scrumptious!

      Thank you for bringing that to my attention! Yes, 1 cup of sugar should be added to the recipe. I will be making that edit. Thank you again 😉
