Chocolate Crinkles

I will just go with the other picture--I didn't get any good closeups. They are really good cookies. We had a problem with the powdered sugar blowing around and burning in our industrial convection oven, so we just skipped the powdered sugar step and basically made fudge cookies. Good stuff for a chocolate lover. This is from recipezaar.
