Chocolate Crinkles

I remember when I was little, my family and I would always go to Baguio, Philippines. It's a city north of where I grew up. It is called "the City of Pines", it's particularly popular in summer due to its cooler weather. I'd go once a year with my family and hit the tourist spots in Baguio; Burnham Park, John Hay Air Base, Mine View Park and Good Shepherd Convent. Good Shepherd was one of my favorite spots to go because they sold treats like the ube jam, peanut brittle and my favorite, CHOCOLATE CRINKLES!!!!

Chocolate crinkles are basically like the chocolate donuts from Dunkin Donuts that's covered in confectioners sugar. I always looked forward to getting them every time I go to Baguio. For years, I honestly thought I wouldn't be able to remake them but after a lot of research, I was able to re create them. I think they are as delicious and as moist ( I don't like that word) as the ones from Baguio.

P.S. - eating almost a tray of chocolate crinkles made me miss the Philippines : ) Sometimes, I want to go back and just live there.
