Made with melted semi-sweet chocolate chips, these small cookies are covered with powdered sugar, which “cracks” the surface as it bakes, giving them a distinctive look.
This crackles recipe, created by Quaker Oats, was originally named “Double Chocolate Treasures” when it was published back in 1987, as you can see in the vintage 80s ad below. The cracked appeared alongside two other Quaker recipes: Choco peanut butter dreams and chocolate cherry brownies.
