Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

When I visited my parents in Indiana before Christmas, I helped my mom bake a bunch of cookies to put into holiday gift baskets for their neighbors. I chose these cookies because they are super simple (I've made them before), they remind me of brownies, and covered in powdered sugar before baking, they look like they've been dusted in snow...so perfect for winter.
