These Chocolate Rum Crinkle Cookies have a bit of a twist by using Captain Morgan Rum in the batter. This Rum will be added flavor and the alcohol will cook out of it, so no worries about that! These cookies are so simple and easy to make and will be made in no time at all. Be sure to keep this recipe handy to share with your loved ones in the future.

Adding rum or any type of alcohol to a recipe really makes a unique flavor profile, especially when you add it to chocolate. During the holidays, it’s always so much fun to share food with our friends and family. That’s why it’s so important to have a variety of cookie recipes on hand. You never know when you need to make a quick batch up! I have a couple of quick and easy cookie recipes that are perfect to have on standby. For example, my Chocolate Christmas Cookies or my Monster Cookies are always a hit. Another recipe that you should try is my Christmas Sprinkle Cookies recipe. These cookies are so soft and simply amazing.

Ingredients

  • Flour- Use all-purpose flour for the best results.
  • Baking Powder- This will allow the cookies to rise in the oven.
  • Salt- The salt will bring out the flavors in the recipe.
  • Cocoa Powder– You will need to get the Dark Hershey powder.
  • Eggs- Use eggs that are at room temperature.
  • Sugar– Every great dessert uses sugar in the recipe.
  • Canola oil– You can use vegetable oil as a substitute.
  • Captain Morgan Rum– The alcohol in the rum will cook out of the cookies.
  • Chocolate chips- You will need semi-sweet chocolate chips for these cookies.
  • Powdered sugar- This sugar is perfect for homemade frosting.

How to Make Chocolate Rum Crinkle Cookies

Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder into the medium bowl and whisk to combine.

Next add in the eggs and sugar into a large bowl and beat to combine.

Add in the oil and rum and mix to combine.

Slowly combine the wet and dry ingredients until combined.

Add in the chocolate chips and fold to combine.

Use plastic wrap to cover and put into the fridge to chill for 1 hour.

Set the oven to 350 degrees and use parchment paper to line 2 baking sheets.

Add the powdered sugar into a small bowl.

Scoop the dough into your hand using a small ice cream scooper and roll into a ball.

Add the dough ball into the sugar and fully coat.

Do this until you have about 11 balls on the tray.

Place in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until puffy and firm on the edges.

Take out of the oven and let rest for 5 minutes to cool.

Serve and enjoy!

Are These Safe for Kids to Eat?

When you make these cookies, many people believe that the rum will bake out of the cookies while others believe that not all of the rum bakes out. There is 2 tablespoons of rum in this recipe, which is a small amount of alcohol that is spread between all of the cookies. Whether you feel this is safe to give to children is a personal choice.

What Makes Cookies Crinkle?

The rum crinkle cookies are super delicious and crinkly! Their crinkle is from the outer layer of the cookie. The cookie is rolled into sugar and baked for an additional couple of minutes to harden up.

My 11-yr old son LOVED these & asked for them to be made again ASAP.  I found the dough (even after putting in fridge for several hours), to be a bit too loose to form into balls, but was still thick-ish – followed recipe exactly.  I just plopped spoonfuls as I could into the powdered sugar & still worked fine.  They are a very LIGHT cookie – I was expecting super dense given the batter, but was surprised how they cooked up. Still very chocolatey too.  The rum flavor isn’t pronounced, but since I know it’s in there, think I can taste it a smidge.5 stars
