Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

This is one of our guest's favorite cookies! And funnily enough, I found it in a German cookbook (by Tanja Dusy) which is called "US-Bakery." Whenever we put them out, they are gone very quickly. They are chewy in the center, and very, very chocolatey! That's the point of a chocolate cookie, don't you agree!
