Chocolate Crinkles Recipe

Another cookie from my husband's family recipe vault. These chocolate crinkles are my favorite. They are sweet and chocolaty, with a slight crisp on the outside and a nice softness on the inside. It's like having your own little chocolate cake sprinkled with powdered sugar. Divine, I tell you.
