looking for a recipe for chocolate earthquake cookies

I would like to recreate the chocolate earthquake cookies that they make at Sofra's Bakery in Cambridge, MA. They taste like a cross between a wonderful brownie and chocolate truffle, not too sweet. They might be called chocolate crinkles too.

  1. Funny coincidence, veggielover. We had a light bite at Sofra this morning, and finished up with an earthquake cookie. I'd love the recipe, too. Soooo good.

    1. I've never had chocolate earthquake cookies, but here's the original Betty Crocker recipe I use for chocolate crinkles. I like to add mini chocolate chips to this recipe. I've also used mint chocolate chips, which are great


      1. Not sure if this is the same, but the photo sure looks like. Those are my FAVORITE COOKIES!

        1. Again, not exactly what you're looking for, but I like to try different cookie recipes (unfortunately!) and these remind me of the crinkle aspect of yours, since you roll them in powdered sugar- they were chewy, chocolatey, delicious- but not too sweet at all.

          "Deep Dark Chocolate Cookies" look for it on the bonappetit or epicurious website. They really are a 10!
