Fudge Crinkles Recipe

As mentioned on our ARC Teacher’s Workshop and Peanut Butter Kiss Recipe posts, here is the long awaited Fudge Crinkle recipe.  I guarantee it was worth the wait!

This recipe was found on food.com and only requires 4 ingredients!



  • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box devil’s food cake (Betty Crocker Super Moist suggested)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • confectioner’s sugar or granulated sugar, for rolling



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Stir (by hand) dry cake mix, oil, and eggs in a large bowl until dough forms
  • Dust hands with confectioner’s sugar and shape dough into 1″ balls
  • Roll balls in confectioner’s sugar and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until center is JUST SET.
  • Remove from pans after a minute or so and cool on wire racks.



  • You may have a problem with cookies flattening while baking.  This usually happens with the generic cake mix brands.  You can play with oven temp to keep them from spreading.
  • Another way to keep them nice and thick to get the most “crinkled” look is to make them bigger. When i roll them at about 1.5 inches they look prettier.
  • BEST tip: My confectioner’s sugar was consistently being absorbed by the dough.  The last time i baked them, I rolled them into balls without rolling in the sugar and let them “dry” for a few minutes. Then I rolled them in sugar and baked. These came out with a nice coating of sugar that didn’t disappear.


While I love the peanut butter kiss cookie, the fudge crinkle has got to be my favorite quick recipe.  I can’t help it, I have a chocolate tooth!  I hope you enjoyed these recipes.  If you have any suggestions or tips, please share below!
