These Chocolate Brownie Crinkle Cookies with Pecans and Coconut Flakes may look like regular CRINKLES, but they are NOT! Regular Crinkles have cocoa powder and a lot more flour, these have CHOCOLATE and LOTS of it.

These festive cookies taste FUGGY, BROWNIE-like.

I have baked 6 dozens of these for our annual Christmas Cookie Exchange, they were a HIT! I loved the comment that my neighbor said: “You can taste the QUALITY ingredients!“.

My hubby and son said that these are the BEST COOKIES they ever had! Mom couldn’t be happier!

Chocolate Brownie Crinkle Cookies for the Holidays

I normally do not bake cookies because of their Caloric factor. So, in this recipe, I tried to cut down on the “bad” ingredients as much as possible.

I’ve used “Light Butter” (47% fewer calories) than regular. Less sugar than normally required, since I like refined tastes rather than too much salt or sugar.
