Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

PS. sorry about the lack of pictures but like so many of the yummy things I make, I took them to a family thing and they were gobbled up before I thought to take a picture. Note to self--I need to be better about that....

 Chocolate Crinkle Cookies 
(otherwise known as Chocolate Snowball cookies)
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup
cocoa powder
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp 
baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

powdered sugar

In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar & Vegetable oil. Add cocoa, mix well. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In another bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to cocoa mixture blending well. Cover then chill at least 2 hours. Heat oven to 350. Make dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in powdered sugar (good job for someone age 2-5 :) Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet lined with parchment. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when touched (don't over bake.) Remove from cookie sheet, Cool on wire rack.
