Chocolate Crinkles.

4 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1/4 c. vegetable oil
2c. sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. powdered sugar

In a double boiler or microwave, melt chocolate. In a large bowl, blend together oil and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in melted chocolate and vanilla. In seperate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to chocolate mixture gradually, mixing until well combined (the dough will be stiff). Chill overnight or until dough is firm enough to be rolled into balls.

Preheat oven to 350 degres. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and roll in powdered sugar. Place on baking sheet and bake 10-13 minutes (if you want them soft and gooey). Let cool 2 minutes.
