Chocolate Crackles: Sweet cookies, lovely gift!

 I have more work to do lately, ^^", so I have to stay with my sister a lot. I'm happy with that because my nephew, he is one of my best customer, haha.

 This time I make the chocolate crackle cookies for him. A sweet cookie that's kids will love, ^^, and it starts form the look of it. The moment that he saw the cookies he asked "Why it has a white powder over it?" So I told him that it's confectioner' sugar, that I rolled the cookie dough with it and while baking the cookie spread out, and crate this look.
Because I made it for my nephew, I use only 50% chocolate but it's too sweet for some adults (like my mom) so, if you want it to be more bitter, you can use chocolate with more cocoa mass, 70% will be great too.
The cookie will be very soft when coming out of the oven but it will firmer after cooling, so don't worry ^^.

Wowwww, never made this before but it sure look very tempting. Did you use regular confectioner's sugar or specially for coating sugar (like doughnut sugar). Wouldn't it melting during the baking??

Hi, Hesti
You can use normal icing sugar for this cookie. I made it with snow icing (like doughnut sugar) before and it melt while baking.
